About this Wine

It's always fun to match the wine to the food of the region the wine is from. In the case of our Bonelli Barbera, you're spoiled for choice. A classic tagliatelle Bolognese would fit the bill very nicely. Or, if you can find a good Italian deli try gramigna (a pasta like an elongated macaroni, unique to Bologna) with a simple sausage, white wine and tomato sauce, sprinkled with blizzard of mature Parmesan.

Tasting notes

Barbera is a variety most commonly associated with Piedmont, where typically it plays second fiddle to Nebbiolo. But Barbera is planted throughout Italy, and is pretty widespread in regions like Lombardy and Emilia-Romagna, in the hills between Piacenza, Bologna and Parma. What Barbera does well is concentrated black cherry fruit with a really refreshing acidity. A brilliant red to enjoy on its own or with a variety of foods.
