Wine Guide > Barbera


3946 visitors
Barbera is a red wine grape variety that is either the most- or second most-planted variety in Italy. It gives good yields and can impart deep colour, low tannins and (unusually for a warm-climate red grape) high levels of acid.
More information on Barbera
Food Pairing: Pairs well with savory casseroles, roasted meats and stews. Try with a creamy mushroom soup, white beans with olive oil, basil and a crusty loaf of herbed bread.
