Details

Barbera has been the most popular grape in the Piedmont region in Northwest Italy for centuries. In recent years, as growers and winemakers have been adopting more modern techniques, Barbera has undergone a remarkable transformation. With new vineyard care, especially around Alba and Asti, it has emerged as a top-ranked wine which readily withstands comparison to noble Nebbiolo (Barolo) but does not require the extended aging that Nebbiolo demands. Deep ruby,medium-bodied, and fruity in its youth, it ages to impressive depth and elegance. The fruit in this Barbera remains as fresh and inviting at two years as at 6 months. The oak and tannins will mellow to a soft and well-rounded impression that lifts the fruit to a most attractive level.

Great red wine Review by Joe

directions are easy, the kit has progressed exactly as it should. I'm waiting for the wine to clear so I can bottle it now, the taste at this point is great. I'm betting it only gets better as it ages. (Posted on 8/27/13)
