Barbera results in refreshing wines with high acid levels and low tannins. Similar to Dolcetto, the best Barbera originates from Italy’s Piedmont region. With little to no oak and moderate ripeness, Barbera results in a fresh and spicy wine that goes very well with food. Increased grape ripeness and barrel aging result in darker fruit flavors and common oak flavors such as toast and vanilla. Barbera’s bright acidity, fresh fruit flavors and neutral aroma make it an ideal candidate for blending.
