BARBERA: SO MUCH LOVE
YET STILL SO MUCH TO LEARN

This grape variety has got acid and color to make any other grape varieties blush with envy, but it is most often very low in tannin. For balance, many producers both in Italy and domestically have played with deepening the structure with extended maceration, longer cellar aging and even blending in other varieties. Instead of the ubiquitous light and quaffable everyday glou-glou, we now enjoy a more refined and serious wine: more tannic and structured, aged in new barrels and built to last.
