      It’s a lip smacking juicy red with plenty of flavour. Approachable when young, it is a wine to be enjoyed any day of the week. Barbera comes from Piedmonte, the north western region of Italy. Although, it is grown throughout the country and is their third most-planted red variety. While Barbera first came to Australia in the 1960’s, it has only recently gained immense popularity. Barbera plantings in Australia are increasing as wine lovers' demand is on the rise for something different. This medium bodied wine has good acidity and gentle tannins. Matured for 9 months in both French and American seasoned oak barrels
