Soft with an intense ruby-red colour, the Barbera has Notes
of blackberries and ripe cranberries; on the palate it remains elegant and powerful, with good potential for ageing. We recommend drinking it from the second to the sixth year at a temperature of 17-18°C with salami and cheeses and rich first courses with meat sauce.
