Walter Massa 'FUSO' Barbera Piedmont, Italy 2019Regular price $16.00
When the importers from PortoVino approached Piemontese winemaker Walter Massa with a collaboration idea, their parameters went something like “we want what the locals drink.” And so he applied his renowned expertise with other local varietals to craft a quaffable daily drinker, made naturally.
100% Barbera, all estate fruit and sustainably grown, goes into concrete for aging, sees minimal filtration, and no added sulfites. All these careful applications result in a juicy blue-fruited wine, with gentle tannins and a charming brightness. Imagine yourself clinking glasses with the villagers of Piemonte!
Food Ideas: pizza wine! tomato-based anything (chicken cacciatore, eggplant parm, Manhattan clam chowder), cheese plates, leftovers
