Staff Pick Notes

A co-worker once said “ Drinking Barbera will make you a better person”. Well… it may sound hyperbolic but drinking this Barbera almost certainly will make you a better person or at very least a happier one! A striking wine that just yearns to be paired with food. The wine is cedary with brilliant acidity laced with cranberry, strawberry, tar and lovely herbal notes. Italian food, meet your match !
