Brezza Barbera d'Alba Superiore, 2012

This bottle comes from my cellar back home, but it brings back happy memories of drinking a glass or two of red wine (always with gratis appetizer).while waiting for the local trattoria or ristorante to open at 7:00 p.m. This bottle, though, is very good, more suited for a primi or even a secondi piatti.

Beautiful ruby red, deep and brilliant. The aromas are very cherry, red and slightly tart. Also some red raspberries, mint and licorice. Cherries on the palate, too--freshly picked and bright. Abundant fruit but enough depth and complexity to accompany any meal. A gorgeous Barbera.

Brezza's Barbera comes with a glass cork--eliminating the risk of a corked bottle while offering more elegance and class than a screwtop closure. I like it. .
