They say Barbera is the most food friendly variety in the world. We agree - with its plush fruit characters of currants and blackberries and its soft, supple tannins this is a wine that is dangerously more-ish.
The perfect wine with smoked duck, dumplings or smoked salmon. Cherry red in colour with a spicy aroma and tarry overtones. The palate is packed with fruit flavour with an earthy background, light tannins and soft acids finish the wine.
