Oh man, I love campy ‘60s exploitation flicks!

Wait. Did you say “Barbaresco” or “Barbarella?”

No, I’m not disappointed. Well, maybe a little. I just heard Socré Italian Barbaresco and got all excited, because, well, I thought you said Barbarella. Like maybe it was gonna be some super kitschy European cut of the film or something. Don’t get me wrong, this is good, too. It’s just sort of like expecting a Cabernet and drinking a Merlot. Both are good, you were just all set up for one.

I mean, this 2007 Socré Barbaresco is no wild excessive machine, but it’s no biting bird cage, either. It’s got a light, feminine touch just like Barbarella herself before it smacks your palate with a sensual slap of cherry, strawberry, and licorice flavor with bright acidity. And just like Barbarella, this wine finishes spicy.

And I wouldn’t blame you if you sipped the 2008 Socré Barbaresco Roncaglie and thought you had been transported to the Labyrinth of Love. Who wouldn’t love a medium-bodied wine with flavors of red berries lit up with notes of violet, rose wood, and earthy aromas? It’s a five star, double-rated astronavigatrix kinda wine, for sure.

I was just hoping to indulge in some campy sci-fi. And Jane Fonda.
