BARBERA D'ASTI SUPERIORE 2008

'SAN MARTINO' CASCINA ROERA, COSTIGLIOLE D'ASTI, PIEDMONT, ITALY

100% BARBERA

At 15% ABV, this wine is full-bodied but also silky and velvety and really a delight on the palate. Sour cherries hit the aroma with woody leather notes. An immediate taste of cherries, soft tannins and a little metallic hit make this an easy crowd-pleaser, and works well with meat and game dishes, as well as roast chicken and of course the cheese course – especially with blues like Gratin Bleu.
