Barbera

In spite of Nebbiolo taking the crown in Piemonte, Barbera is actually the grape that produces the most. Originally produced as a table wine for Italian families to share with lunch, it is getting more and more traction as winemakers discover the potential of this soft and fresh grape. Lighter in tannins, higher in acidity, it is incredibly food friendly.
