Cren della Lepre, Barbera 2018, Piedmont, Italy
Tasting Note: A simple, straightforward barbera to pair with a weekday meal.
Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-intensity nose of red cherry, strawberry, red plum, red currant and blossom with some forest floor notes.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied wine has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose along with wet hay.
The wine is medium in acidity and completes with a medium finish.
Bottle Note: A traditional Piemontese wine, this soft-styled, elegant barbera exhibits a rich ruby color in the glass. Notes of fresh berries and flowers intermingle on the nose, while the palate reflects the relaxed, easy nature of the varietal with no hint of tannin. Serve at 62°F.
