The Pio Cesare 2016 Barbera d'Alba is a dark and juicy red wine with the power and substance to pair with grilled sausage or porchetta. You need a robust food with some fat to match the wine's dense and smooth appeal. This cooler vintage offers tart acidity, and this is another important pairing quality when it comes to fatty foods. This is a very attractive and versatile red wine offered at a value price. Some 80,000 bottles were made.
The Barbera grapes coming from the Barolo and the Barbaresco regions gives to our Classic Barbera a peculiar great structure, full body, complexity, smooth character, ripe fruit, spices and a long life.
