San Silvestro Ottone I Piemonte DOC Barbera, 2011

This Barbera was consumed at home with carry out pizza, and it was neither so simple that it went unnoticed nor so complex that it showed up the pizza. San Silvestro Barbera is readily available for about $8--one of the best values on the market today.

It has that medium deep ruby color that is typical of Barbera. Cherries rather than raspberries here. Cherries with a twist of black licorice and some flowers. Beautiful smells and flavors that remind me of the best of Piedmont. Bright, fresh and ready to drink, but I suspect there is more to come.
