A cross between an aged Chianti and Cab. Smooth on the palat, clean finish.
This is everything I love about Barbera - concentrated red fruits, dusty tannins, excellent acidity and a lingering finish. Everything is in balance and it's a great match for many foods.
I'm very impressed with this wine. For $20 it's smooth, dry and a perfect level of acidity.
Not as good as rated. I thought it would open up more with time but it sort of died out. I love Italian wines so perhaps my expectation was a bit too high. I should say, it wasn't what I had anticipated.
