Casa Santorsola Barbera

It is very unusual to find a Piedmont Barbera for under $25. To my astonishment, this one was $7. Since these northern Italian reds are usually out of my price range, I don't have much to compare it to; so, I'll compare it to other $7 reds.

Bueno! It was not too heavy, a little dry. The Barbera is a close cousin to the Sangiovese of Chianti fame, but did not have the same taste. Oddly, I'd compare it more to a Pinot than a Chianti.

Definitely a stron 6 out of 10, maybe even a 7, because of the price.
