It's only wine but I like it

(note of the 2016 vintage) A straightforward Piedmont red here, with bright red cherry fruit, low tannin, crisp acidity...just as I would expect from barbera. Very smooth and little oak. Nothing complex, but I would not have expected such in a sub $12 wine. Apparently, that is the discounted price for a wine being discontinued. A shame, that - this is a fine pizza/pasta wine for little $. Tasted Sep 2018.
