Staff Pick Notes

An interesting wine from the Emilia Romagna region: it's a non-vintage wine where the product is stored in a big concrete vat that contains a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Barbera, and Cabernet Franc.

Today, Cabernet Sauvignon has a...

Wherever they fall on the spectrum of stodginess, however, they are generally ruby-colored, full-bodied, and highly acidic, with remarkably low levels of tannins. The areas that are most strongly associated with Barbera (for good reason) are the Alba and Asti DOCs, which consistently produce...
