Barbera is a red Italian wine grape variety that, as of 2000, was the third most-planted red grape variety in Italy (after Sangiovese and Montepulciano). It produces good yields and is known for deep colour, low tannins and high levels of acidity.

Century-old vines still exist in many regional vineyards which allow for the production of long-ageing, robust red wines with intense fruit and enhanced tannic content. The best known appellation is the DOCG Barbera d'Asti in the Piedmont region.

When young, the wines offer a very intense aroma of fresh red and black berries. In the lightest versions; notes of cherries, raspberries and blueberries and with notes of blackberry and black cherries in wines made of more ripe grapes.
