Stefano Farina Barbera D’Asti 2003 wine review by (PB)

This bargain bin wine cost me $6 in Boston. It is a pretty clear red with awesome bouquet of sweet flowers and powder with a hint of strawberries.

In the mouth it is tart–too tart–austere, chewy and dry as slate with short finish. I will breathe it.

With some air time dried cherries are prominent with air but the palate is still too acidic (tartness) with rough edges. This is an angular wine and thin on the palate. For the price it is okay but worth passing over.
