Ruvei Barbera d'Alba 2008, Piedmonte, Italy - $8/glass

Had this wine with dinner at Locanda Positano in San Carlos, CA. It is produced by the Marchesi di Barolo winery and retails for $8/glass at the restaurant. I found it online ranging from $15 - $20/bottle.

Aroma - red and dark fruit, a little hot
Taste - plums, dark cocoa, soft tannins

The Barbera went great with my food, which included a salad of roasted peach/burrata/wild arugula/balsamic reduction, and the Positano pizza with clams/shrimp/zucchini. Thanks for a great dinner, CM, LM, LM, and RM!!!
