Alcoholic strength: 14%

This Barbera wine, certified as denominazione di origine controllata (controlled designation of origin), is made from grapes grown in the classic vines area of Maranzana, Ricaldone and Cassine. The grapes are carefully selected, and the wine is aged in Slavonian oak barrels. These factors enable this Barbera d’Asti to be described as Superiore, denoting a product originating from particular vineyards and made with special attention.

This wine has an exceptional body and structure. Its colour is a very intense ruby red with violet reflections. Its bouquet is rich and complex, of considerable concentration and breadth. On a foundation of red fruit and berries, there are notes of spice, tobacco, eucalyptus and hints of wood, with undertones of minty spices, vanilla and liquorice. On the palate, it is dry and generous, revealing the perfect combination of the grape varieties’ characteristics, with sapid harmony and well-orchestrated velvety tannins, hints of cocoa and vanilla that blend with the red fruit tastes that are typical of Barbera. Altogether a wine of elegant smoothness and great class, with a very long and satisfying finish.

This wine is the perfect accompaniment to complex recipes, red meat, game animals and birds, and stronglyflavoured cheeses.
