2012 Icon Reserve Barbera

Tasting Notes

This Italian varietal has dusty and earthy notes that complement its red cherry aromatics. Light-to-medium tannins and bright acidity make this a fantastic food wine, especially for tomato-based foods (marinara sauces, pizza, etc.). A crisp and clean finish has lingering notes of caramelized sugar, clove and red raspberry.
