Guido Porro Barbera d'Alba

GUIDO PORRO Barbera d’Alba “Vigna Santa Caterina” 2018 

(Piedmont, Italy) $23

Somehow it seems fitting that a rugged masculine barbera should be made by a man named Guido. Earthy and full of personality, it’s a barbera that’s delicious in an old-fashioned sort of way, including the attractive hint of salty sweatiness (like a man who’s just run a mile). Loads of dark fruit and a noble bitterness round out the flavors. Italian wine lovers know these sorts of barberas and know how sensational they are on a cold night with, say, a bowl of pasta Bolognese. (14.5% abv)
