91The Wine Advocate

...displays superb richness, elegance and balance in its layers of fragrant, dark fruit.

90Stephen Tanzer

Superripe aromas of black raspberry, blackberry, licorice and bitter chocolate; began with a porty aspect but seemed to grow fresher in the glass. Fat on entry, then stuffed with fruit, with strong acidity giving it shape and energy.

REGION

Italy, Piedmont, Barbera di Alba

Barbera d’Alba is a DOC centered around the town of Alba, and it is considered home to some of the best wines made from the Barbera grape. Barbera is the most frequently planted grape in Piedmont, thanks to its adaptability and vigorous character. It is easier to grow and less susceptible to adverse weather than Nebbiolo, which is grown in neighboring appellations. Barbera in general has relatively low tannins but high acidity, and the wines tend to have flavors of ripe currant and cherry. The Barbera DOC was created in 1970 and the DOC wines must be 100% Barbera.

TYPE

Red Wine, Barbera

This red wine is from Piedmont. It is known for low tannins and high acidity, which makes it taste both light-bodied and rich. Barbera most often drinks early, but some variations can be cellared. The wine is relatively inexpensive and flexible for pairing.
