A bright, fruity young barbera with crushed berries and cherries and hints of orange peel. Medium body, easy tannins and a fresh, tangy finish. Drink now.

Here's a fresh, primary expression of Barbera that highlights dark fruit and sweet summer cherry. The Massolino 2019 Barbera d'Alba is all about that fresh and succulent fruit, although, if you spend a little extra time examining the bouquet, you will uncover nicely integrated aromas of forest floor and button mushroom. It ages in cement for six months. This is a cheerful, exuberant and fruit-driven wine that calls out for a plate of fettuccine with porcini. It's not a particularly complex or complicated wine, but it gains points for its easy and proud accessibility. An ample 45,000 bottles were made.
