A great-value Barbera sourced from Lodi and entirely barrel-aged, Uvaggio's Italian red is very savory and rich with a mix of leather, cherry, chocolate and perfume. With a small amount of Primitivo in the blend, it'll accompany meats and pastas in red sauce as well as drink nicely on its own, the acidity standing up to a wide range of earthy dishes.
