More about this wine from Lombardy, Italy
At first you get tons of damp earth aromas that fall from the glass. Wet moss, sea splashed sandalwood and briny notes. As the wine breathes you get more melted purple popsicle notes, frostbitten raspberry and sandy lavender. This wine is extremely layered and has a beautiful depth to it.

This is a cheerful expression of the minerality and savory notes that can come from this grape. Give this wine an hour or so to open up in order to get the full extent of its dusty, funky texture. Barbera is also great to have around because no matter what kind of person shows up at your door, this grape is smack in the middle between light and heavy, fruity and earthy, bright and fat.
How to drink it

The salt brings out the snappier notes in this earthy wine that can get lost, like luminous raspberry.
