The lovely bright ruby red with orange hues that fills the glass immediately conveys a powerful, warm feeling. And Barbera is indeed quite happy to make an appearance on richly-laden tables at banquets and receptions, though it has a long-established reputation as a straightforward, genuine country-style wine. It has little to envy its more celebrated companions in terms of aroma either: a nose of fresh roses opens onto classic woodland scents, ranging from redcurrants to strawberries. On the palate the first sensation is that of the rich acidity which makes it a robust, full-bodied wine. But it is also blessed with great balance, thanks to the fruit that emerges little by little and evolves with the passing of the years into spicy overtones. Recommended with richly-seasoned rice and pasta, as well as strongly-flavoured sauces and dishes, it is also well worth discovering with starters based on milder cheeses.
