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, itís 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.
