Barbera

Parentage of the grape: indigenous to Piedmont, Italy
 
History of the grape: Barbera is a native to the Piedmont, where it has been growing for centuries, and is now the fourth most planted grape in all of Italy. 7th century Lombard historian, Paul the Deacon, wrote that the Lombard troops defeated the Franks at the Battle of Refrancore after getting them schnoggered on the local wine, which was likely Barbera. The jugs had been scattered all over the field and the Franks willingly drank from them, and lost their coordination. 13th century documents from the Casale Monferrato have details of leasing agreements for vineyards planted with “de bons vitibus barbexinis,” which is Barbera. In 1798 Count Novolune, the deputy director of the agrarian society of Turin, named Barbera as one of the grapes in his list of “Vitis vinifera Montisferratensis,” the grapes surrounding Read more »

  • Lo Zoccolaio Barbera d'Alba Suculè 2006

    Snoothrank:

  • La Loggia Barbera d'Alba DOC 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Love this wine- as a broke college student and someone who has lived in France on the cheap, this is a bottle worth picking up at Trader Joe's and enjoying some good cheese with. Nothing too fruity, smokey or harsh about it... and I don't usually drink too many cheap reds.Recommended by my friend's Parisian mother! Read More

  • I'm hoping the Snooth community can help me out with some recommendations. I've have had a couple Argentinian Malbec and Malbec blend wines in the last couple of months that I really enjoyed and I was hoping that I could get some recommendations to expand what I've tried. I'm looking up to $50 but realistically more in the $15 to $30 range. L... Read More
