Marco Bonfante “Stella Rossa” Barbera D’ Asti 2016 Piedmonte, Italy
The Stella Rossa shows hues of bright purple and red. It has a wonderful bouquet, with scents of red fruits like marasca cherry and dark fruits like blackberries with hints of anise, and a very delicate vanilla note. On the palate it is dry, full-bodied and structured, with the acidity typical of this variety. It’s persistent and the tannins are well balanced.
Pair with roast pork shank with jus and ricotta gnocchi or ravioli with mushroom ragu.
