Color: Deep purplish, almost impenetrable red. Bouquet: Elegant, sweet and tempting, the intense and fruity notes characteristic of Barbera emerge. Flavour: Vinous, fresh and well balanced. An easy to drink wine which is tasty and rich without being excessively binding. Food Pairing: Perfect with Langhe cuisine and very tasty dishes in general. Excellent with past, rice and soup, braised or grilled red meats and medium-mature cheeses. It is also perfect for aperitifs, with appetisers and sliced meats.

Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Barbera d'Alba represents a very successful match between grape and vintage. The 2017 summer season was extremely hot and dry, but Barbera loves heat and sunshine. This is a wine of enormous richness and intensity, both aromatically and in terms of texture. The bouquet offers dark fruit, blackberry preserves, spice and moist chewing tobacco. This is a medium- to full-bodied red with chewy, succulent fruit flavors.
