2015 Barbera d’Alba “Cascina Dardi” A. & G. Fantino - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant


Barolo may be the “King of Wines,” but walk into any Piemontese trattoria or even the winemaker’s home at lunchtime, and chances are you will find a bottle of Barbera on the table. Unlike Nebbiolo, the vine is not finicky about site, and its generous yields make it a reliable tool for small growers. As far as we drinkers are concerned, Barbera’s strength lies in its versatility: its soft tannins and bright acidity match easily with a wide range of cuisines. In the Fantino cellars in the heart of historic Monforte d’Alba, Barolo is clearly King, but Barbera is by no means an afterthought. These sixty-year-old Barbera vines enjoy a privileged place alongside Nebbiolo in the Dardi vineyard, a subsection of the famous Bussia cru. After eighteen months in stainless steel, this lovely red—elegant, smooth, and loaded with delightful fresh fruit—is now ready to accompany your pastas, pizzas, and much more. –Anthony Lynch
