2011 vintage - no oak, super classic, fresh and bright example of Barbera from a family that has been making this wine for generations.

Barbera d'asti - so much big fruit primary character it really is the antitheses of it's nebbiolo neighbors, or the rest of Italy's wines for that matter!
This one is a pleasure to drink on any occasion

Mamma Mia! Great expression of barbera. Very pure, fruity, cherry but very gluggable with a nice smooth texture

Started out medium body, has gotten lighter. Really tasty (glou glou)! Peppery afternote has gotten less peppery over the week but still prominent afternote. Super easy to drink
