WELCOME BACK!!! We are so excited that a new importer has come on board to bring us the ‘Vespa’ Barbera. Wonderful ripe red fruits, licorice and floral aromas leap from the glass followed by a supple, silky, ripe mouthful of red fruits that will remind you of a first class Pinot Noir with Italiano style. Made by a small, traditional estate in Piedmont, Mariuccia Borio is a Barbera specialist who hand picks all the fruit and makes elegant classic wines (that’s her as a girl in the pink dress in the 1950’s---love it!). Serve with pork, chicken, pasta with tomato-based sauces, salmon, tuna or fine cheeses.

Wine EnthusiastThis opens with aromas of red-skinned berry, blue flower and a whiff of clove. The straightforward palate offers tart red currant, orange zest and ground pepper alongside brisk acidity. Drink soon to catch the fruit richness.
