Terramata Barbera d'Alba, 2017

Terramata Barbera d'Alba is produced by a growers' cooperative, Cantina Vignaioli, in the Piedmont area of Italy near the city of Alba. It is reasonably priced (under $15 and sometimes under $10) and a good choice to accompany pizza, pasta or other every day fare.

Medium deep ruby. No blue or purple tints. Strawberries, tart cherries, earth and spices. Not much tannin to get in the way of the bright fruit flavors and with ample acidity to keep it lively. Not as complex as other reasonably priced Barberas, such as Franco Serra and Costa di Bussia, but good fruit flavors and a long finish.
