The wine shows intense aromas of dark fruits, spices, black pepper and anise. It is fresh on the palate with high acidity, silky tannins and ripe dark fruit flavors. A long lingering finish.
Barbera d'Alba DOC
Guyot method with medium-short pruning; Fermentation in stainless steel temperature controlled vats. 8-10 days maceration ; malolactic fermentation in stainless steel vats. Aged 18 months in new French barriques then aged in the bottles for another 12 months.
Refreshing acidity makes this very food friendly. It would work well with pasta topped with porcini mushrooms.
