ALPHA BOX & DICE ENIGMA BARBERA
Riddle me this... What is the beginning of eternity, the end of time and space, the beginning of every end and the end of every race? It’s “E” of course. The AB&D Enigma is a puzzle well worth solving, as a puzzle has many sides, only some visible at first, but the deeper you dig the more is revealed. Barbera is the grape variety here - thought to have originated in the hills of Piemonte, it’s high in acid, low in tannin, tricky in the vineyard, tricky in the winery, but by the beard of Zeus does it ever shape-shift into a soifalicious drink in the glass when all the panels of the vinous Rubik’s Cube align. Barbera you saucy, puzzling little minx.
With the colour of arterial blood, the nose reveals wild berries, rhubarb and custard. The palate oozes strawberries and cream mixed with pink lemonade.

My first taste of thus wine was at a Michelin starred Dinner tasting menu with wines selected for each dish. I came across this one during the main I believe and it was a fantastic match but also a great flavour. It was so nice I hunted down a case as it appears quite difficult to obtain. Certainly don’t expect to find it in your local supermarket or run if the mill offy
If you get a bottle enjoy it
