Review: Vietti 2012 Barbera d'Asti Tre Vigne (SRP $20): This lively and inviting Barbera pours a deep garnet color with ruby highlights. It is medium-bodied and supple, with spice-tinged aromas and flavors redolent of sweet black cherries, deep black-raspberry, and blackberries, ending with a hint of vanilla bean and a nice burst of bright acidity in the medium-long finish. Overall, this is a versatile and food-friendly charmer that will complement your favorite Italian dishes and more without breaking the piggy bank. Enjoy now or within the next year or two. Region: Piedmont, Italy. (Other info: ABV 14%, matured in French / Slovenian oak casks for 14 months then moved to stainless for 2 months before bottling, unfiltered, cork enclosure). 89 Points.
