Tesco Barbera D'Asti 2005

This (at centre in picture) is wine two (of three) Tesco branded reds I picked up in the Merrion Centre on Saturday.

Name: Tesco Barbera D'Asti
Year: 2005
Price: €12-49
Notes: We had this accompanied by a delicious rib-eye followed by some Cashel Blue and I'm afraid to say I think the wine was overpowered by both, either that or this wine didn't impress itself on us. There was nothing wrong with it but nothing stood out about it, it was perfectly pleasant but did not seem to possess any defining attributes. As the most expensive of the three I would have expected more, but as always, your mileage may vary.
Rating: 6/10
