Drink this: Now through 2014
Although the Barbera grape is now grown across the world, it definitely reaches its full potential in the Langhe hills of central Piedmont, around the market town of Alba. Piedmontese Barberas are loved for their combination of juicy, red-fruit flavors, vibrancy and smooth tannins, that together make them such good pairings with everyday – as well as upscale – Italian cuisine. I'm excited to bring this tiny U.S. allocation of San Silvestro Barbera to you.
A soft, attractive nose of raspberry, strawberry and other red fruits is the first indication of how juicy and enjoyable this red is. On the palate, the red berry notes are rounded out by some oak and toast characteristics, as well as an attractive earthiness. This example has vibrant acidity that will be perfect with everything from fondue or stews, to lasagna or pizza. It is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Enjoy this now through 2014.
