London Cru 2013 BarberaThis Barbera material was first imported from Piemonte, and then fully produced at London Cru winery - a batch of it was oaked in the old oak barrels and part of the blend was matured with no oak at all. It is very juicy with sour cherry and plum flavours, offering lingering acidity and incredibly fruity character as a whole. You would be surprised by how fresh and acidic it is (if you like it!), but the fruit content is astonishing - really generous amounts of cherries and plums! We just thought it lacked a bit of spice, a bit of oak and a bit of depth really...
This fruit driven wine would be great al-fresco with your pizzas, quite fatty starters like parmigiana di melanzane or italian cheeses.
