Tralcio Antico Barbera d'Asti 2018

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from a small supermarket around the corner from the hotel at which I was staying in Italy when I attended my nephew's wedding to an Italian girl. Tralcio Antico seems to be some sort of brand name because I have seen it on a number of Italian wines but the back label of my bottle reveals that it was actually produced by the Nella Cantina Costigliole co-operative group.Barbera D'Asti became a DOC in 1970 and was upgraded to a DOCG in 2008 and refers to wines made of at least 85% barbera from thje area around the town of Asti in Piedmont. Barbera is a dark skinned grape variety that originated in Piedmont.I started my bottle last night with my supper of pasta bake.There is plenty of a blackberry and cherry style fruit with some spice or pepper particularly on the finish.It is fairly acidic but the tannins were soft and smooth although I felt it could do with just a little more structure.However there was plenty of flavour there and it went well with my pasta
