Mauro Molino Barbera D’Alba 2013

Mauro Molino Barbera D’Alba 2013: Very straightforward, mellow, simple red; cherry, raspberry, blueberry, some eucalyptus; very smooth, almost no tannic tang, reserved acidity, no oak. Barbera efforts typically are not complex, and this exactly fits the mold. If you are into bold red statements, this is not for you; if you want a simple, tasty red that doesn’t mind playing a restrained, supporting role at your meal, this works well. $17Mauro Molino Barbera D’Alba
