Wine Review: This deep red wine opens with a bouquet that is very aromatic and inviting. On the palate, the wine is very creamy and flavorful. The finish is tingly and nicely long. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The color of this wine hints at its richness. Unlike the stark magenta color of most Piedmont Barberas, this wine is very dark purple. Aromas of anise and raspberries topped off with vanilla and smoke fill the nose and are echoed in the mouth with lingering plumb fruit compote. We haven’t tasted anything like this since the legendary 1976 vintage! It is lush yet maintains a nice level of acidity, which makes this wine perfect for food pairing. Due to its low-tannin nature, it can be paired with most fish entrees, but its ideal match is Osso Buco. Enjoy also with any tomato-based stews and pizza.
