From the bottle:
“Two distinguished winemaking families — Francheschi from Italy and Terlato from the United States — have combined their expertise to develop this Barbera from Piemonte. The wine delivers flavors of dried black fruit and earthy spices along with bright yet balanced acidity. Silky soft tannins are featured along with rich fruit and a long finish.
The 2010 Mazzoni Piemonte Barbera begins with pleasant aromas of black cherry and other dark berries, earth, a little oaky spice and a hint of smoke. Tasting reveals flavors of sour black cherry and other tart dark fruits, a wonderful smoky spice and a bit of licorice. Smooth with soft tannins, good acidity and great balance this medium-bodied wine is absolutely wonderful with pizza or pasta. It ends long and dry with more sour black cherry, spice and an excellent earthy streak.
