This vineyard’s success with Barbera - a Monticello Cup and numerous Gold Medals - matches the consistency of our Pinot Grigio and Cabernet Franc. The wine has become a strong favorite in our list, for its great varietal typicity and for its ability to respond to diverse gastronomic agendas. Those who wish to exploit its earthy vividness with game birds, or its bright acidic backbone for tomato or cream-based pastas or grilled fish, should not hesitate. It can be paired “up” the scale with meats or pâté customarily requiring greater tannin, and it can be paired well “down” the scale, with artisanal sheep’s cheese. It is the favorite discovery in red wines, for palates previously confined to whites, and in lither wines, for palates previously confined to heavy tannins. Barbera refreshes the dining experience of everyone, in this classically Piemontese profile.
