Walter Massa 'FUSO' Barbera Piedmont, Italy 2019Regular price $16.00
When PortoVino Imports approached Piemontese winemaker Walter Massa with a collaboration idea, their parameters went something like “we want what the locals drink.”
The result is this 100% Barbera--all estate fruit and organically 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
