Like Chianti or Crianza Rioja, Barbera is light bodied with a bright, juicy core of mixed fruit that will pair well with a wide range of food styles. This particular example also has a slight roundness on the palate, likely due to very ripe fruit at the time of harvest which takes it one-step beyond the typicity of the style.  Serve slightly chilled alongside dried meats, olives, and herbs breads.
