Jazzy juice like this is why savvy enthusiasts are big on Barbera. Showcases the fine fruit typical of the Piedmont's recent hot streak of vintages. It's also an example of a more confident, balanced use of oak in the best examples of this workhorse grape. Presents stylish chocolate, dark berry and game notes, bright acidity and firm, even tannins. Will compliment almost any hearty food. Drink now–2006.
