Sometimes we feel rather punch drunk at how criminally underrated Barbera is. Perpetually living in the shadow of Nebbiolo, Barbera is finally seeing a bit of the limelight, with its boisterous acidity and luminous perfume, coaxed to its finest expression - it can be phenomenal. To truly nurse this variety to greatness, it requires a very serious approach from a Barbera specialist, enter Marchesi Alfieri. We have been importing these wines for several years now, and they have built a cult following, whilst, editorially at least, remaining under the radar. The 2013 offering from head wine maker Mario Olivero is the best they have ever made, and quite frankly one of the best Barberas I have ever tasted. We are not going to tell you again! Try this wine!
