Vietti 2006 Barbera d'Asti Tre Vigne

I aerated this after opening.

Dark red color, purple at the rim.

Plum and black cherry smells, oak.

Tart black cherry and sweet prune flavors, ripe peach, restrained touch of oak.

A nice bottle for $19.79. I'm coming to really appreciate Barbera. It's quite a revelation after thinking of ordinary Chianti as a representative Italian red.
