Day #[wpdts-day-of-year start=”post-created”] of the year.

Michele Chiarlo Barbera d’Asti Le Orme

Piedmont, Italy is famous for its big reds: Barolo and Barbaresco. But every Piedmontese will tell you they pour a Barbera any old day of the week more often than anything. And what’s Monday if not a perfect “any old day” to enjoy this juicy red? Versatile enough for whatever weekend leftovers you have (or, if you’re like me, whatever experimental new recipe you’re trying), I suggest you do like the Piedmontese and always have a bottle of Barbera on hand.
