Not my favorite wine right now. Went towards balsamic on the spectrum. With air it developed more but still not my preferred.

Best barbera I’ve had in a long time. Juicy, fruity, deliciousness with terrific balance and acidity.

Nice medium nose, full on the palate. Good acidity on finish.

Great barbera - mid/full-bodied, purple and bright with dark fruits - tinge of plum? Good underlying acidity, so good with the beef
