Barbera is one of our favorite grapes: lusty and full of
character, with earth and dark fruit flavors pointed up
with lively acidity. In the past few years, it’s gotten pretty
fashionable, with some big guns ageing it in oak
barriques, and going for a lot of extract and a high-polish
finish. Honestly we prefer the older style: not so much
wood, refreshing, and at a happy price. Guidobono
makes a wonderful version in this vein: flavorful, balanced
and the perfect glass for a casual dinner.
