The 2014 La ZONA Barbera exhibits a rich purple with crimson edges and fragrant aromas of blackberries, plums and spice. As a medium-bodied wine, the La Zona Barbera has great intensity in the glass. The palate is full; spicy plumy, with blackberry and chocolate notes, nicely rounded out by toasty vanilla oak, balanced by mouth-watering acidity and fine tannins. The wine is ideally paired with tomato based pasta dishes, slow-cooked lamb shanks, braised veal or pizza. Drink now or cellar to 2019+.
