It is a very bright and expressive wine and not weighed down by too much oak, as some of the styles of Barbera these days tends to lean toward. Fresh, fruity with a lovely acid core, this wine might replace my usual Morgon on the Thanksgiving day table this year!

* Rocca 2009 Barolo, a $13.99 special at Trader Joe's. I do not bring high expectations to this wine, and a mixed bag of reports on CellarTracker suggests that I'm probably wise not to save it for a special occasion.
Still, it ought to be drinkable. I've found that TJ's crazier-sounding bargains are usually at least "good enough for dinner."
* Cascina Ca' Rossa 2010 Langhe Nebbiolo, $19.99 at Whole Foods. I hope I'm happy. Couple of nice reports from CellarTracker on the 2009.
Any of you have thoughts on these wines? Do any of you have thoughts based on actual tasting?
