In this Barbera there is beauty and generosity. It lights up your palate in the way that Renato’s smile lights up a room. It's known by his importers around the world as the best value wine from his cellar and it's always the first to disappear. It can impress just as well as any Barolo.


Tasting Notes

No, it's not nebbiolo, the grape of Barolo. Fine. It doesn't want to be. Be gone with your 'King of Grapes, Grape of Kings' bombast. It's happy with what it is. It ploughs a different furrow, sings a different song, and it's a song we at Swig enjoy very much. It's an absolute superstar with food, from rich tomato-y pasta dishes hidden under a snowstorm of pecorino to a hearty roasted rib of beef. It will give and give and give some more, and ask for nothing in return but your loving approval.
