A Barbera with a gorgeous perfume of fennel, anise seed, wild roses, and plum skin, plus something tawny and dusty, too, like harvest fruit, like earth, like autumn. It’s attenuated and linear along the tongue, very pure, with glistering acidity and a clean, squeaky-tannic finish. This is a superlative food wine; pour it with pesto, marinara, pizza, fish, poultry, cheeses. It could (maybe should) become your staple, weeknight wine. 14% abv | $18 (sample)

Delightfully friendly, yet oh so elegant... Seemless texture, pretty floral/violet, maraschino cherry nose, it's like a warm vinous hug at a very approachable price. Yummy with pizza.

Excellent Barbera. Medium bodied, light tannins, and smooth drinking as you expect in a Barbera.

Juicy, soft and glugable, good for $14. Served cold on a hot harvest day

Tart maraschino cherry with a little mushroom bitterness. Smoothly textured, mild acid with lesser tannin. Fruit comes through. Fresh and fun.

Call me bias since this a personal favorite cantina of mine, but I really feel like this makes the top 5 list of best wine you've had under $20 with consistency. A gem. The quality is undeniable.

An eminently food friendly wine, full of red cherries with nice acidity and earth tones. I'd have this with pasta and pizzas and meats for sure.
