Araldica Barbera D’Asti Superiore 2016

If you like a tasty bargain, this is a good choice. Barbera d’Asti is a great source of medium bodied but highly expressive wines from Italy’s North West.  The Piedmont region is one region that produces a very wide and diverse range of wine from light frothy Moscato bubbles to the ever elegant Barolos.

At first sniff, this wine gives off a whiff of bunch of roses and herbal garni bouquet before settling into the plum and cherry depths enriched by a creamy caramel oak regime. It has a fuller body, bolstered by some ripe and shapely tannins.  A smooth, evenly balanced red that will work just as well with mid week pasta as it will with lamb cutlets.

Quickie review «A prettily perfumed and expressive fuller bodied red with floral and herb aromas overlaying the typical red fruit and earth. Good value to be found here.»
