Mini-Review – Agostino Pavia Blina Barbera d’Asti 2010

When I came across a Barbera aged in stainless steel instead of oak, I had to pick up a bottle!  It opens with aromas of red berries and a hint of white pepper .  The palate has simple, bright tastes of cranberries and red cherries with lively acidity.  The lack of oak influence makes the wine very fresh and food-friendly.  Easy to drink and definitely worthy of mid-week sipping!  Pair with pork, game meat, or pizza.  (B+, $14, 14% alcohol)
