Barbera is an Italian grape widely planted in Piemonte that produces wine that is typically very deep in colour with low tannin and high acidity. This is a juicey, food-friendly red. Flavours include blackberry, dark cherry, plum, and blueberry. Within the past couple decades, its popularity and quality has dramatically increased. The grape itself is known to be quite vigorous and the tendency is to over-produce it; Barbera was historically a light and tart table wine. Eventually, winemakers focused on quality discovered that careful pruning, proper terroir, and smaller yields produced much better wines. Premium Barbera is found in Alba and Asti.
