Bright acidity and very little tannin make this a terrific food wine (remember, food loves acid!). Light bodied, easy going and fruity. Great with any tomato based dishes, mixed cheese plate, chicken, pork...whatever! Versatile.

By the way, this is a great wine to teach your palate the difference between acidity and tannin. The Barbera grape has very low tannin and lots of acidity. So unless the winemakers add tannin by finishing the wine in oak or the wine spends a lot of time on the stems and seeds that 'zing' you feel in your mouth is adicity..not tannin. Acidity makes your mouth water
