Barbera wine

Barbera is another popular grape in Piedmont (Piemonte) – and accounts for nearly half the amount of vines grown in the region. While it's often found blended into table wines throughout Italy, it shows its best side in the Monferrato region of Piedmont. The very best Barbera wines come from the Barbera d'Asti DOCG – Asti's Nizza sub-zone has recently been granted DOCG status, too. Another excellent example of the wine comes from the Barbera d'Alba DOC.

What does Barbaresco taste like? High in acid and low on tannin, Barbera is typically light and refreshing. Although it has a dark colour it tastes like wild cherries, raspberries and blueberries underpinned by warming vanilla and spice from oak ageing.
