Tasting note

2019 Patrizi Barbera d'Asti

Light colour and soft tannins. Lots of primary fruit with dark cherries in particular. Not heavy on the spices, but offers hints of white pepper. This is a good value wine from Piedmont that isn’t complex, but fun to drink and a nice accompaniment to tapas plates. Drink now.

Drink through 2023.

Wine details

Vintage: 2019
Style:still (dry)
Grape variety:

Red grape variety originating from Italy. Well-known appellations include Barbera d'Alba DOC and Barbera d'Asti DOCG in the Piedmont. Barbera is mostly used to produce single-varietal red wines (though technically certain other red grapes can be added to the assemblage to a minor extent in most appellations) with a red fruit aroma and flavour, medium to high acidity and low to medium tannins. Some producers choose to mature their wines in barrique to give them more depth and complexity.

For assemblages, the main grape variety is shown.
