Wine Review: This slightly opaque ruby red bouquet opens with a mild oak infused black cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and very easy to drink. The flavor profile is a tasty blend of mild black raspberry, old oak and strawberry. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This wine is very food friendly and would pair well with Italian dishes like spaghetti and Italian sausage or fettuccine with wild boar ragu. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Ruby red in color, L'Avvocata offers Barbera's typical intense aromas of ripened cherry and strawberry. Round, full-bodied and balanced with a spicy finish of cola and ripe berries. L'Avvocata is a great choice for rich pasta with meat sauces, roadt beef, bebabs, ribs and aged cheeses.
