Better understanding of soils, altitude, rights to water and improved vinification techniques have all influenced the ability to make quality wine from the likes of Barbera, which is usually not seen much outside its homeland of Piemonte in north-west Italy. Barbera wines are typically medium-bodied, with blackberry fruit and high acidity, making them the perfect choice to enjoy with cured meats and cheeses.
