Tasting note

Food-friendly and affordable, Barbera is stealing some of the spotlight from famous Barolo and Barbaresco. This plush version has aromas of black cherry, violets, blackberry and vanilla bean. Delightful with antipasti, eggplant parmigiana or Mediterranean-herbed chicken.
Under the purplish red colour, the nose is medium and complex. Enjoy this dry, medium-bodied and fruity red featuring refreshing acidity. On the palate, it showcases fleshy tannins and a broad mouthfeel that leads into a medium finish.
This is a ruby-red wine with purple highlights. The nose is packed with black fruit, especially blackberries and plums, with slight spicy overtones hinting at black pepper and cinnamon. Sweet, soft tannins come together in a closely-woven texture that merges with the fruit, while a crisp freshness provides a long, tasty finish. This wine is at its best for 3-4 years following the harvest. Pairings: A perfect match for starters, cured meats and fresh and medium mature cheeses.
Liquor Marts
Plums and cherries reign on the palate, with fine acidity, but not with that over-the-top tartness. The black pepper and fruit spiced with bits of cardamom are perfect flavours, for Spaghetti Bolognese or mushroom risotto.
