GET REAL WITH AN ITALIAN RED
Dolcetto and Barbera are two of the last outposts of traditional Italian red wines. Wines with flavours and feeling of the earth â€“ unadorned with anything toasty, buttery or sweet. They combine the no-nonsense feeling of a taverna wine with something special. So invigorating and appetizing â€“ feels like you could drink lots. Like a good painting, or jazz , thereâ€™s a great mix or tension, presence and imagination. Iâ€™d be buying cases if it weâ€™re $12.95, but Iâ€™ll splurge for the spiritual experience of a wine that offers â€˜realnessâ€™.
