The 2014 Monferrato Rosso Pin is a blend of 65% Nebbiolo and 35% Barbera. The Barbera is from the Asti subzone, and you really taste those bright sweet cherry flavors that are characteristic of that area. In fact, the Barbera plays a larger role in the taste profile of the wine with elements that are very focused and bright. With time, however, the quiet but firm nature of Nebbiolo begins to emerge especially on the long finish.
