BARBERA D'ASTI D.O.C. LA SOLIA
Alcoholic strength: 13%
This Barbera, certified as denominazione di origine controllata (controlled designation of origin) is made from grapes grown in vineyards belonging to members of the Maranzana winemakinig company, at the centre of the classic Barbera district including land in the municipalities of Maranzana, Cassine and Ricaldone. This is a modern wine that has achieved great success, due to its harmony, sapid flavour, and its very attractive overall characteristics.
The wine’s colour is intense ruby red, with garnet reflections. Its bouquet has a base of red fruit, and develops into notes of spice, tobacco and eucalyptus, with rich, broad and lengthy fruit aromas, together with light and delicate hints of raspberry and violet. On the palate, it is distinctively elegant, lively and vigorous, with a characteristic balance of body and acidity. It develops a distinctive and intense flavour, with a long finish, enhanced by attractive notes of mature fruit and cocoa.
This wine is superb in combination with a wide range of recipes, such as complex first course dishes rich in flavour, red and white meats, and cheeses both moderately matured and wellmatured.
