Barbera

Barbera is a red wine grape variety that is the second most-planted variety in Italy (the first is Sangiovese). It gives good yields and can impart deep colour, low tannins and (unusually for a warm-climate red grape) high levels of acid. Barbera d'Asti is one of the most renowned of the Barbera based wines, found in two main variants: Barbera d'Asti Superiore which must be aged in big oak barrels or small French oak barrels for at least six months, and plain Barbera d'Asti which is not required to be aged in oak. The wine has a strong aging potential; the "Superiore" kind can often be aged from three to eight years or even more. The best producers see its potential as being almost as great as that of nebbiolo.
