A fresh entry in the festival of Barbera, a celebration of one of my favorite general-purpose reds.
Near-opaque wine, violet at the edges.
Cherry and plum smell, leather and basil, evidence of some young oak which doesn't intrude.
Cherry and plum fruit flavors, bright with Barbera-typical acidity.
A fine medium-bodied bottle for $19.99, suitable for a lighter lunch or dinner.
