Boroli Barbera d'Alba 2006
Tasting Notes : The color is very intense, ruby red. On the nose it offers aromas of ripe forest fruits and undertones of vanilla while on the palate this wine is close-texture, mouth-filling with aromas of ripe raspberries and blackberries.There is a nice balance of acidity alcohol and tannins followed by a long-appealing finish.
from epicurious:"Barbera is Italy's most food-friendly red wine type: It's a classic, light-on-its-feet red, able to dance around complicated food-matching problems. Boroli is a small, high-quality producer that houses a hotel and Michelin-starred restaurant called Locanda del Pilone. So the owners clearly know their wine and food. This bottle hails from the grape's true home, the Piedmont region in the northern section of the country. The cherry and raspberry flavors are crisp, not flabby, and there's a lovely lingering finish."
Light and somewhat fruity wine which goes perfectly with pasta dishes.

Helles jugendliches Rubinrot. Schöne rote Frucht, blumig – erinnert an Tulpen und Rosen und auch etwas an grünlich-pflanzliche Noten. Im Gaumen frisch, lebendig, mit feiner Gerbstoffstruktur, sehr floral wieder. Unkomplizierter, sehr gefälliger Barbera,
