This particular Barbera boasts aromas of bright red fruit and a funky new raincoat smell; the palate is slightly sharp, but in a good way; cherry and plum skin, a subtle spice as well, though it's the SweetTart candy finish that has me returning for a second glass.
The clean, fresh acidity will pair perfectly with tomato-based sauces and rich flavoured pasta dished. Chill slightly before serving. Tasted July 2012.
