 Tasted by Wine-Strategies on 4/12/2014: A nice, slightly more than serviceable Barbera d'Asti, but it shows the softness of the vintage, and can only muster so much. Typical color, with aromatics of red and blue fruits, soil and some red floral, but nothing is complex, and after 2 hours open, no sign that more is coming. Crivelli acidity and balance, which is always a pleasure, but nature only provided so much to work with here. Notwithstanding its youth, the wine is completely approachable on pop and pour; if 2011s are still in the marketplace, pick those up before/instead of this 2013. 14,0% abv (1367 views)

Barbera

Varietal character (Appellation America)

Barbera is a red wine variety, originally from Italy, which is best known as the second-most important Piedmontese variety after Nebbiolo. The wines made of this grape are mainly the everyday drinking wines of the region. The main appellations producing Barbera are Asti and Alba.

Barbera - The most widely grown red wine grape of Piedmont and Southern Lombardy, most famously around the towns of Asti and Alba, and Pavia. The wines of Barbera were once simply "what you drank while waiting for the Barolo to be ready." With a new generation of wine makers, this is no longer the case. The wines are now meticulously vinified, aged Barbera gets the name "Barbera Superiore" (Superior Barbera), sometimes aged in French barrique becoming "Barbera Barricato", and intended for the international market. The wine has bright cherry fruit, a very dark color, and a food-friendly acidity.
