Ascheri Barbera D’Alba Fontanelle 2005

This medium bodied, single-vineyard barbera is a great value and a nice stray from the day-to-day varietals. For those of you trying barbera for the first time, Ascheri is a great doorway to one of the most planted grapes in Italy.
Benchmarks of a good barbera are: medium-low tannins, high acidity with notes of sour cherries, plums and herbs. Barbera is a great wine to pair with food, especially a saucy italian dish (thanks to the wine’s acidity)

    John, I don’t know personally, but my best advice would be to find a local wine shop and see if they have heard of it.

    Good luck in the hunt, it’s a nice bottle.
