Red fruit on a forest floor on the nose and up front, more red fruit lingering on the palate, trailing to a graceful finish. A gorgeous Barbera! 13% alc/vol and recall about $10 at a discounter. With her chicken cacciatore, steamed broccoli and garlic bread. Might as well shoot me now 'cause it ain't gonna get any better. If you see a rail car of the stuff passing through, don't let it get away! Decant, though.... it throws lots of sediment.
