A WINE TO TRY

2010 Paitin di Pasquero-Elia Barbera d’Alba ‘Serra’

Piedmont, Italy

About $22

Rich and spicy

Goes with: Salumi, rustic pasta dishes, vegetarian dishes, burgers

This is not your rustic Barbera but a wonderfully elegant example from the renowned Barbaresco producer Giovanni Pasquero-Elia. A gorgeous ruby red, the 2010 Paitin Barbera “Serra” is soft and silky in texture, intense and so fresh with flavors of cherries, blueberries, mint and spice.

The Barbera shines with a platter of salumi and with hearty pasta dishes. Pour it with vegetarian dishes, pizza and grilled meats too.

And while you’re shopping, keep an eye out for his other bottling “Campolive.”
