Good Red Wine

Barbera D'Alba

It had been some time since I opened a Barbera D'Alba.  I am still in cellar clearing mode and these are not wines I cellar.  I buy them and drink them.  This one was a Mauro Veglio from the 2013 vintage.

The wine was bright reddish purple in the glass. It was full of sharp and tart fruit, fully ripe but not sweet.  Dusty aromas of red berries.  There was a lot of acid and a good amount of tannin.  The acid and tannin cut through a fat, juicy steak just as I was hoping it would.  Wonderful together.

2013 Mauro Veglio Barbera D'Alba.  13.5% alcohol and $16.
