Langhe Barbera Cascina Corte Organic Red Wine Piemonte Northern Italy.
Almost impenetrably dark ruby red, lively and engaging. The nose expresses all the personality of the grape variety with a complex, heady bouquet of fruit (blackberries, sour black cherries) and, even more so, spices (vanilla, pepper). On the palate the traditional acidity backs up the rich, voluminous body. The finish is long and full of character with a lovely fruity encore.
Thanks to its quaffability and softness, an ideal accompaniment for soft cheeses (its acidity sets off their creaminess) and legumes. Also effective with first courses such as rice with red wine and main courses involving baked vegetables.
