Ca'Viola, Barbera d'Alba, Brichet, 2006.
Even I will admit that the label is a little weird. Why does the wolf appear to be smiling? Is he drunk? His eyes are a little off kilter. That said, we really liked this wine. A little wood and dark plummy fruit with good acidity, I found this to be a terrific high end Barbera. Very pleasing to me palate. Perfect for a cold night by a romantic fire. Growl!
We bought it so long ago I can't quite remember where we got it. I think its available (or once was available!) at Rosso Wine Shop for around $30.
