Barbera is one of the most widespread and well-known Piedmont wines; the production of Barbera d’Alba is part of a territory of 54 neighbouring municipalities in the Langhe capital, the heart of this area. The rusticity of the vine and the particular attention paid to the management of the vineyard guarantee the quality of the grapes even in years that are not entirely favourable; moreover, careful management of the decanting means that this wine is best expressed in the glass giving us the following organoleptic characteristics.

Colour:
deep garnet red with evident violet reflections

Aroma:
broad, intense and clean with floral notes of wild rose and small berries jam

Taste:
full, harmonious, warm, savoury with a persistent and very pleasant aftertaste

Precisely for the freshness and fragrance of this wine, the combination with food has no limits, however it is best expressed with first courses and second courses of meat in general.
