Renato Ratti Barbera D’Asti
Barbera is the hardy staple grape of the famous Piedmont region in Northern Italy. The grape accounts for around 55% of the wine produced in that region.
Barbera typically a deep ruby color with low tannin and bracing high acidity. Barbera has a relatively long hang time on the vine and that imparts a lot of rich, dense flavors to the wine.
As Barbara is well known for its acidity you should try to pair it with rich, fatty foods and dark meats.
