Very good! I was in a rush and looking for a decent wine to pair on a Friday night with some homemade pizza. For a mere $8.99, I wasn't expecting a whole lot, but boy was I surprised... Easy on the palate, and very smooth, this Barbera had a wonderful fruity (but not too much so!) flavor. Long after the pizza was gone, I kept sipping on the wine as it works well with food or on its own. Highly recommended...especially for the price!
