Barbera Beauty • Delicious Is An Understatement!

November 19, 2021

You want to grab some of the 2018 Bovio "Regiaveja" Barbera d'Alba Superiore!

With its brick-ish hue, Bovio's Regiaveja will turn almost any meal into an unforgettable experience. From pizza to pasta to grilled meats, the savory cherry will provide you with a fantastic lip-smacking experience.

Not all Barberas are the same.  Aged in oak - but not oaky - this is a great everyday alternative to Cabernet Sauvignon.

Ruby-red and redolent of red cherries, the wine is wonderfully perfumed with notes of lush raspberries, lavender, violets, and eucalyptus. The palate is warm and spicy with a deliciously long finish.  Bright, refreshing acidity gives the wine its superb lift.

Barberas tend to be juicy and fruit-forward; here, however,  you will be greeted with exotic, dusty tannins, a hint of oak, coffee bean grinds, and minerality that integrate seamlessly.

If you crave a piece of cheese and want balanced fruit that doesn't overwhelm the senses, then you need to try the 2018 Bovio Regiaveja Barbera d'Alba Superiore.
