Expresses pleasing aromas of cinnamon, black pepper and roses, accented by raspberry fruit. A rich, velvety entry leads to the inviting fruit flavors of ripe plum, cassis, cinnamon stick and a bright finish with a hint of baking cocoa. This Barbera is flavorful and light-bodied, while dense-in-fruit at the same time. It is a “juicy” red wine with a bright finish and due to the high acidity, pairs really well with rich, fatty foods and high tannins, thus making the dish complete.
