General Comments
Barbera varietals are now giving Barolo and Barbaresco a run for their money for great red wines from Italy’s Piedmont region. Without the longevity and raw power of the Nebbiolo grape that goes into the other two wines, Barbera’s virtues lie mainly in its rustic charm made up of shiny bright fruit flavors, uplifting personality as contrast to the broodingly captivating Barolo character but nevertheless engaging in every positive ways. Packed always with fresh acidity, the wine is among one of the most food versatile reds in the world, and certainly the all time favorite dinner wines in Italy.
