Tenuta La Pergola Monferrato Rosso
Barbera & Dolcetto blend
$16.00 per bottle
A wonderful little cuvée from winemaker Alessandra Bodda, this week's feature is a delicious blend of Barbera & Dolcetto from Monferrato which is just a little ways to the northeast of the Barolo zone in Piemonte. Boasting the rich, herbaceous aromatics of Dolcetto and the pleasant fruitiness of Barbera, this blend is well structured for a light-bodied yet long and flavorful summertime red. The versatility of this wine makes it extraordinarily easy to pair with meat dishes, everything from regional carne all'albese to braised lamb shanks.
