Tom’s Decanter article on Barbera

February 22, 2010

Barbera Meeting blog contributor Tom’s Wine Line graciously has graciously shared a PDF of his article on Barbera, published in the current issue of Decanter magazine (special Italy supplement).

Here’s an excerpt:

    Relatively low tannins and high acidity distinguish Barbera, giving its sour cherry/berry fruit a bracing raciness, and making it super food-friendly. Carlo Revello, winemaker at the family firm, explains his affection for the variety: ‘Maybe it’s a generational thing. My father used to drink Dolcetto every day. My brothers and I prefer the fruitiness and acidity of Barbera.’
