"I love this wine for its sense of place and its archetypal character. As soon as I smell those supple berry flavors and the bright, balanced acidity, I know I am in Italy’s beautiful Piedmont region. This is a grown-up Barbera that is incredibly food friendly from grilled beef to pasta with tomato sauce. Ode to the joys of Italy!"
– CM, Chef
"The charming and affable Stefano Barbero reminds me of Academy Award-winning Italian actor, Roberto Benigni. But he is so much more than a delightful and inspiring character; he is a very talented winemaker. With an open bottle of his Barbera d’ Alba and a pork-based pasta dish, there’s no question, “Life IS Beautiful”."
– MB, Taster

incredibly food-friendly, and when aged in oak, as with this
example from the Barbero family, it’s bold enough to stand up to
hearty chops and roasts. Grape-growers for generations, the
Barberos began vinifying their own wines in the 1950s. This bottling
comes from vineyards in Alba, a prestigious subzone known for
