Piedmont, Italy

$16 bottle / $92 half case / $164 full case

Barbera can get a bad rap for being too fruity, this wine is a true testament to what Barbera can achieve. The vineyard site is typically reserved for Nebbiolo in the village of Barolo. The nose is one of forest floor, coffee grinds, and deep berries. On the palate, the wine is a kaleidoscope of Italian flavor profiles. White truffles, rich black currant and black cherry. It’s full-bodied, but not overly tannic; making this lush and soulful wine the perfect partner for hearty winter stews and braised meats. Purchase a case or two today at this laughably low price and I promise you’ll be rewarded over the next three years.
