Leading wine blogger @Vindulge recommends Mazzoni Barbera
Here’s what leading U.S. wine blogger Mary Cressler — author of Vindulge and contributor to VinSleuth Uncorked and Barbecue America — had to say about the Mazzoni 2010 Piemonte Barbera, which she and her husband paired with her Grilled and Glazed Chicken recipe:
Lots of dark black berry aromas with some spicy pepper and a slightly earthy feel. More tart berry fruit flavors on the palate, lots of cherry (dried cherry, black cherry, even maraschino cherry), with smoke, pepper, smooth tannins and fresh, lively acidity…
[The wine] had excellent rich fruit that was a lovely match for the juicy chicken and balanced well with the sweetness of the sauce.
