Veglio Michelino et Figlio Barbera d'Alba, 2012

The winery advertises this wine as having reduced histamines, presumably to eliminate the "red wine headache" that some experience. I don't get such headaches, but I enjoy this wine.

Deep, dark youthful color. Violet, blackcurrant jam and chocolate--very pretty. Plush and ripe on the palate.Good acidity on the finish. This wine might age well, but it's hard to resist at this stage. I'm thinking 2012 might be an enjoyable vintage for Piedmont wines.
