The Barbera Grape
The Barbera Grape is preeminent in the Asti and Alba areas of Piedmont, Northern Italy. This is an easy-drinking, lighter-style of wine full of fruits (cherry, strawberry, plum and blackberry) and a hint of spice. Meant to be drunk young as it has soft tannins, its crispness creates a red wine which is great with food. When aged in oak barrels, the wines can be medium to full-bodied and are more capable of cellaring.
