Barbera is one of the oldest grape varieties grown in the northwest Italian region of Piedmont, featuring both elegant style and zippy acidity. It’s also the most widely planted grape variety there – read: it offers great value for your dollar. So when we had the chance to offer this particular Barbera from the sun-exposed hills of Asti, where the grape ripens into its most drinkable, enjoyable form, we jumped on it. This refined red is smooth and pure, with dried cherry, leather and plum characters, but with a cranberry-like acidity as well. Sip this medium-bodied wine on its own or with hearty Italian dishes like pasta Bolognese or seafood pasta. You’ll be instantly transported to a trattoria in northern Italy.
