Red grape : Barbera

One of the most widely planted grape in Italy, Barbera is well known for it's high acidity and cabernet-like fruit character. Mainly planted in the northern part of Italy in the Piedmont area, it yields simple, light wines to be enjoyed in their youth. Barbera has been widely exported to the New World wine regions now where it is used in blends for its acidity, especially in hot regions.
