ABOUT THE VINEYARD

Barbera

Barbera is a very prestigious typical Piedmontese wine that can be enjoyed young but is also suited for aging in wood. It is a rich, elegant, full-bodied wine characterized by a fresh acidity. It is very appreciated both in Italy and internationally. This wine is considered the typical red table wine: originally appreciated in Piedmont and Lombardy, today it is widely spread throughout Italy and the world. It has a ruby-violet, red color, a rich and varied bouquet with fruit notes reminiscent of blackberries, cherries, strawberries and berry jam, along with spicy notes of cinnamon, vanilla and green pepper. Its deep, full and robust flavor softens the acidity typical of this variety. It can be aged in steel vats, in bottles or in wood. It pairs well with rich dishes such as pasta and risotto but also with meat dishes.
