Rive Barbera d'Asti Superiore is a classic barrique-aged Barbera d'Asti from the oldest vineyards of the Il Cascinone estate. Produced by Azienda Agricola Il Cascinone and their uber-talented winemaker Claudio Manera Rive is a deep garnet hued Barbera with vibrant aromas of black cherries and prunes with chocolate and toasty oak undertones and a touch of mint. An abundance of vibrant red currants, black cherries and a touch of spice show through on the palate, which has a rich, voluptuous texture balancing taught acidity and fine oak tannins. It's really versatile for pairing with food. Try it with mature hard cheeses, pepperoni pizza, gnocchi with pesto and sun-dried tomatoes, smoked gammon with onion mash.
