Wine Review: This pitch black colored Barbera is very Old World in style. It opens with a black olive, oak and blackberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balance and savory. The flavor profile is a cedar infused blackberry with notes of green olive, truffle and earl grey tea. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. I suggest pairing this Barbera with beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Appearance: Deep purplish, almost impenetrable red. Bouquet: Elegant, sweet and tempting, the intense and fruity notes characteristic of Barbera emerge. Flavour: Vinous, fresh and well balanced. An easy to drink wine which is tasty and rich without being excessively binding. It is best to serve it at temperatures between 18-20° C. Excellent with rice and soup, braised or grilled red meats and medium-mature cheeses. It is also perfect for aperitifs, with appetizers and sliced meats.

Organic status: not organic
