Barbera is one of the most iconic Italian red grape varieties, also grown overseas. Its origins are very ancient and see Piedmont as the land where it found its adaptability, first in the lands of the Marquisate and then of the Duchy of Monferrato. Its popularity increased at the end of the 19th century, when it was considered a strong vine capable of resisting even phylloxera.

La Rossa 2019, from the Piedmontese Aresca 1952 winery is recommended for the “fresh sips, with a well-smooth tannin, made pleasant, thanks to the balance between the various components. Good persistence reminiscent of a ripe fruit, with an almost imperceptible nuance of sweet spices”. For the full review click here.
