This ruby hued 2009 Barbera has a bouquet full of fresh fruit.  Soft but with a nice structure which allows the acidic tones Barbera is known for to display on the palate.  Packed with dried dark cherry at the front palate with a deep, earthy complexity and lingering finish.

Ready to drink now, or lay down for no more than four years.  Great with meaty fish and lamb.
