Barbera d’Asti DOC
The Barbera grape variety is without a doubt the most classic among the varieties grown on the hills in the Asti area. The vineyards are characterised by predominantly marl-clay soils, with quartz sands and silt. This creates a fragrant wine that has a vigorous but balanced character and can fully express its bouquet.
The colour is a deep, vivid and brilliant ruby. With aging, garnet red nuances become more intense. The aroma is fresh, with fruity notes reminiscent of blackberry and red berries jam, and spicy scents of vanilla and roasted hazelnuts. The taste is full and enveloping, with a very slight acid note. It has a strong woody note, which however merges well with the other flavours.
Thanks to its organoleptic characteristics, it goes well with hearty first courses, white meats and red meats. It is ideal for sipping alongside plates of cold cuts and ripened cheeses.
