Franco Serra Barbera d'Alba, 2014

tFrancoSerra-BarberaDAlbaThis is my favorite every day Barbera, and it is also one of the least expensive ($10 to $12 at D&W in Kalamazoo) on the market. It has many of the traits that I find most attractive in a good Nebbiolo or even a more expensive Barolo.

Beautiful deep ruby. No oak; the wine has been aged in stainless steel. Nebbiolo-like aromatics: flowers, cherries, black licorice. Beautiful. On the palate, even better: sour cherry acidity on the mid-palate and fresh berry sweetness on the long finish. Delicious. Remind me to buy more of this wine.
