Wine review: Ascheri Barbera d’Alba 2010, Italy Add to ...

  • Rating 89
  • Year 2010
  • Region Piedmont
  • Varietal Barbera
  • Price $15.75

Italy’s workhorse red grape, barbera, can make very good wine. Sadly, few fine examples cross the Atlantic. This is a welcome exception. Medium-bodied, crisp and polished, it offers up liqueur-like berry intensity, soft tannins and suave poise. Versatile at the table, it would make for a fine house wine. Good value. Available in Ontario.
