The sex of wines, as well as that of angels ,has been tirelessly discussed . As for Barbera, experts say Barbera as well as for another famous wine Bonarda. Famous writers swing.Carducci produces this versei: “Generous Barbera./Drinking it, we seem to be alone in the sea/ challenging a storm”.Emilio De Marchi, from Milan, instead declines it for men: “After lengthening the Barbera with two big tears,he raised his glass and emptied it in one breath”.Gaber does not lose his balance:Barbera and champagne/together we drink…”and does not make us understand his intentions on the sex of our wine. Then there is the well-known verse from Pascoli: “Serba la purpura barbera…”very feminine.
