This Barbera is loaded with bright cherry and cassis aromas with a sprinkling of clove. In the mouth it's full of darker cherry and cola flavors with nutmeg on the finish. Flavors are deepening as the wine bottle ages; with firm acidity and moderate tannin, it just keeps improving with time.
Pair this wine's lush fruit with something savory, rich, or a little salty. Herbed pork roast is one of our favorites with it, and it's delightful with creamy pasta or risotto. The wine's fruit and acid is a perfect foil for rich food.
