Tasting Notes

Ciao mi amor! Hello my love. The 2020 Dugger Creek Barbera is another stunning example of how beautiful Barbera can be in the new world. A vibrantly colored wine with a pleasing fragrance and juicy acidity makes this an approachable red wine that goes well with food. Aromatically, this wine is bursting with plush cherry, raspberry, licorice, and spice. The rich flavors of red and blue fruits, with a subtle hint of savory herbs and nutmeg, are artfully balanced with supple tannins. Enjoy with pizza, Taleggio cheese (our favorite), mushrooms, or simple pasta with tomato sauce. Salute!
