Winemaker's Notes

Ruby purple color with ripe red cherry aromas with hints of mineral and vanilla. A dry, medium bodied red wine with refreshing acidity (making it perfect to pair with food) and soft tannins, the Barbera d'Asti Tre Vigne is well balanced with good integration of oak, good complexity and a finish of more red cherries.

Food pairings: Antipasti, rich salads, grilled seasoned vegetables, hearty soups, pastas or with breaded veal, pork, chicken with light sauces.

Critical Acclaim

"Medium ruby color with traces of purple. The nose gives lovely red cherry and vanilla notes with hints of espresso and black fruit. Coffee and black fruit elements expand on the palate and lively acidity provides good structure and length. A finely balanced wine."
91 Points

"Exhibits loads of crushed blackberry and blueberry on the nose. Full-bodied, with light tannins and a bright finish. Concentrated and compacted."
89 Points

"The 2006 Barbera d’Asti Tre Vigne flows from the glass with a blast of mineral-infused ripe dark fruit, tar, smoke and toasted oak. This medium to full-bodied, brooding Barbera could use another few months in bottle to come together. In this vintage it reveals superb depth and concentration. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2011."

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.
