Barbera can wear many hats, and wines made from the grape range widely in style, from light, fresh, and zippy to bold, brooding bruisers that stand up nicely to steaks. This delicious Barbera from Paolo Marcarino does a fine job treading a middle ground that leans towards the bold and rich.

A couple of weeks ago, one of our local reps brought this jewel in for us to taste, and I have to say, it was love at first sip! The gorgeous play of lift, freshness, and pure power was enthralling. Most importantly, it wasn't just a simple fruit bomb from the Piemonte -- there are multiple levels of nuance, typically found in much pricer Piemonte reds. Double bonus -- this Barbera is certified organic, and there are no added sulfites!

In your glass, it's an explosion of vividly aromatic blue and black fruits. Blueberry, blackberry, and black cherry tease the palate and mingle with earthy notes, keeping the lush fruit in check. There's more than ample acidity to maintain freshness and lift, and the soft but present tannins provide a pleasingly drying finish.

Rich, ripe, and lifted, this Barbera is sure to appeal to a variety of palates and tastes. Its rich, brooding fruit will be perfect with grilled meats, while the lift and whisper of carbonic make it burger and pasta friendly.
