He said: Served slightly chilled (20 minutes in the refrigerator). Clear, light ruby color. Floral, cherry, raspberry and ripe strawberry aromas. Fresh fruit taste that goes all the way through the medium-long finish. VERY FULL of berry fruit, VERY SOFT tannins, yet a wonderful fruit tartness. If you like juicy fruit in your wine (like I do) you’ll love this!!! For me this is an OUTSTANDING wine and a GREAT bargain…and I’m glad we have a second bottle. Every taste gets better and better (we will not chill our second bottle).
She said: One sniff of this wine and you know this is something special. With a highly perfumed bouquet full of fragrances that holds over, this wine offers complex flavor and dryness with light acidity and no noticeable tannins. It was delicious with the dinner as well as after dinner when just sipping. This is a true bargain wine and I strongly recommend it.
Comments: Barchetto is usually a desert wine but Matteo Correggia has made it into a delicious table wine.
