Iuli Barbera del Monferrato ‘Umberta’
Normal Price: $21.99
Sale Price: $16.99

Listen Linda, Pinot Noir is not the only red wine that will pair perfectly with your Thanksgiving meal! Yes, err on the lighter side, but be open to the numerous other pairing options you have. With appetizing acidity and fruit characteristics that play perfectly off of the (love-it or hate-it) cranberry sauce on the table, Barbera is my varietal of choice. And Barbera is a grape that Piedmonte winemaker, Fabrizio Iuli has devoted his life to. His ‘Umberta’ bottling is 100% certified organic Barbera aged exclusively in stainless steel. Aromas of black cherry, cranberry, cassis, and violet compliment a palate full of ripe plum, black cherry, and raspberry flavors. Not only does this wine amplify a Turkey Smörgåsbord, it can make a charcuterie plate sing and meld with a variety of root vegetables and winter stews. Impress your family or any holiday party host with Iuli Barbera del Monferrato ‘Umberta’.

Cheers and Happy Holidays!
