We had this wine this weekend and we really enjoyed it. It is a very Nice Italian wine. This is how it is described: "Youthful freshness, straight forward favors, and a brash fruitiness"; the "perfect expression of the traditional Barbera so loved as an everyday red wine in the Asti area of Italy's Piedmont region. From 100 % Barbera grapes." "....a fascintatin, exuberant wine to qualf with casual, everyday fare, especially with pastas and barbecues, picnics and family parties."
