I am currently a little disenchanted with #barbera I actually would recommend to myself and everyone to just skip regular Barberas and go only with the Superiores. It is somewhere between a Merlot a Nero d’Avola and a Nebbiolo. Lots of red fruit and usually medium(+) acidity but a bit flabby and just good. This Massolino is a very well grown and made expression of Barbera. Especially for the price. It is very affordable for what it’s worth. #piemonte #italy

Delicious. A wine that anyone can fall in love with. Singular in its "notes", but smooth all the way through. If money was not object, this would be a great wine to make into a sangria (but, please don't. Please).
