Barbera is certainly one of the archetypal Piemontese grapes, grown in the dreamy surroundings of the Monferrato hills. Compared to Nebbiolo, the general Barbera style is more in tune with with contemporary consumer’s tastes: Bold, deep juice marked with a punchy acidity. This red offers earthy aromas of tilled soil, dark berry and leather. The palate gives dried black-cherry, white pepper and some star anise. Pair with meat-based pasta sauces, such as Bolognese.
