Violetta Barbera D'Asti 2018
Barbera is the most planted red grape variety in Piedmont and it's a little less finicky than Nebbiolo. Barbera wines from Piedmont are dark in color and taste black cherry, anise, and dried herbs. Many Piemontese will assert their favorite wine is Barolo, but Barbera (both d'Asti and d'Alba) is the wine that most often fills their glasses. It is versatile, laid-back, satisfyingly robust, pairs with Just about anything - and is less expensive than big brother Barolo.
Barbera pairs excellent with Pizzas with a sausage topping, Pasta with meat sauces such as Bolognese. Spaghetti and meatballs and eggplant Parmigiana, Hamburgers and Meatloaf.
