Barbera d'Alba DOC

The Piedmontese wine par excellence, it reaches its absolute peak after 2/3 years of ageing.

Ageing: in apricot wood casks passed down through the generations.

Colour: bright, intense ruby red with purplish highlights.

Nose: delicate, ethereal, intense, expansive and persistent, featuring fruity plum, blackberry and cherry overtones, slightly spicy.

Taste: full-bodied and mouth-filling, varietal acidity, nicely balanced. The taste is dry, fresh and fragrant, very long.

Food pairings: particularly recommended with first courses, grilled or oven-roast red meat, and briefly/medium-matured soft cheeses.
