Harvested from vineyards of calcareous clay soils near the town of Monforte d’Alba. The grapes undergo a soft crushing followed by a temperature controlled fermentation using selected yeasts. The wine is matured in French oak for one year prior to release.
Complex and concentrated aromas of raspberry and black cherry with hints of toasted hazelnut, chocolate, and leather. The finish is long and filled with bright red fruit and toasted oak flavors.Barbera is one of Italy’s underrated yet delicious grape varietals. At home in the Piedmont, Barbera makes wines that are full bodied, but bright and well balanced with a high level of natural acidity. This one comes from the same producer as our Barolo. Serve with spaghetti bolognese with a hefty dose of freshly grated parmesan cheese.
