BARBERA

Barbera has long filled-in the low slopes and valleys of Northern Italy. It’s considered a lesser wine to Nebbiolo and, therefore, doesn’t earn the best grape-growing real estate (such as South-facing slopes on hills above the ‘nebbia’ or fog). Despite its lowly position, Barbera is the quintessential ‘wine of the people,’ it’s meant to be enjoyed young –and it’s cheap!
 
Discover this unique little grape and never again feel like you have to revert to ‘Chianti’ when looking for a great valued Italian wine.

Somehow Barbera wine tastes both rich and light-bodied. Why is that? Well, one reason is that it has dark staining pigments that dye the wine to near-black. However, the taste of Barbera has notes of strawberry and sour cherry: flavors synonymous with light-bodied wines. Light tannin and high acidity make it taste ‘Juicy’. Most of the Barbera you’ll find is from Italy which leans towards more herbaceous flavors, you can see the differences below.

  3. Viberti Langhe 'Inisj' DOCG 2010

    90 Points - Wine Enthusiast “It’s the same as Sassicaia with their 'Super Tuscans' ; we make an IGT wine that’s a better wine than Barolo!! If you blend a little Barbera with Nebbiolo you get the vibrancy." - Claudio Viberti It might be hard to pronounce "Inisj" ('en-see'); but is a superb innovative blend from the fabulous 2010 Barolo vintage. Complex with ripe red fruits, herbs & concentrated layers of dark berries. Full-bodied & elegant, with perfectly balanced bright acidity & soft tannins on the finish. A "Super Barolo"? An extremely limited-production (1500 bottles) & only made in the finest vintages.
