Welcome to Wine Wednesday friends! Halfway done wit the work week. With all of my recent trips and the holidays, this is my first full week of work innnn forever. And I am of course looking forward to the three day weekend coming up! I will be making the trip down to Charlottesville for the weekend. Can’t wait to cook and perhaps go to a yummy restaurant or two.

Today’s pick for wine Wednesday is a red: Bricco dei Tati Barbera 2009.

I picked it up at Whole Foods last night while getting a few ingredients for a simple Italian meal I plan on making. This wine choice was pretty random. I wanted an Italian wine and at first picked out a Chianti, but then decided to go for this. It was on sale and something that I hadn’t had before. Barbera is an Italian grape variety and produces fruity wines.

This wine was pretty great. Easy to drink and has low tannins, so no super-dry feeling left in your mouth if that’s not your thing. I generally like pretty dry wines, so normally I would choose a different variety than this. The change was nice. What are you drinking tonight?
