Cascina Bruni Villa Lisa Barbera d'Asti 2009, Piedmont, Italy - $9/$33

Had this wine at Second Bar + Kitchen tonight. The menu listed the 2008 vintage, but when we got the bottle it was a 2009. It retails at 2nd for $9/glass and $33/bottle.

Aroma - bright red fruit
Taste - bright red tart fruit, soft tannins, young but good

This was a very food friendly wine. We paired it with buffalo fried pickles and Gorgonzola, goat cheese ravioli with green olives and wild arugula, garlic and chive potato gnocchi, and beef short rib pizza with burrata/carmelized onions/roasted garlic. Yum!!!

I'd love to try this vintage again in a few years.

Update - August 29, 2011
See how this wine tasted at another restaurant!
