- Truffled risotto, grilled sausages or roasted meats
If Barolo and Barbaresco are the king and queen of Italy's Piedmont region, barbera, based on the grape of the same name, is the blue-collar red. But there's regal blood in this outstanding example from Borgogno. Medium full–bodied and juicy, it's exceptionally ripe, with fresh berries and violet and a tamer acid bite than most barberas. Suitable for truffled risotto, it would also match well with grilled sausages or roasted meats. Available in Ontario.
