Barbera is the ‘great lady of red varieties” it is thought to originate from the Monferrato area within the Piedmont region. It accounts for 50% of all red grapes planted in this area of Italy. It offers medium to full-bodied qualities with fruitiness and lighter tannins (have removed a word here.)
It is a very versatile grape variety. The challenge of the variety lies in developing it’s unique style and being true to varietal.
