This DOC Barbera D’Alba produced in the city of Treiso, Italy from 100% Barbera grapes is very traditional in style. The wine spends six to eight months in oak adding more than just a nuance of oak to the flavor profile. Decanting or allowing 30-45 minutes of breathing time will benefit this wine tremendously. Dark red and black fruit aromas with a hint of briar and spice give way to toasty vanilla, cherry, and blackberry flavors. Tannin and acidity is a little forward on the compact finish. Eggplant Parmesan or a really good pizza will pair perfectly.
