Barbera d’Alba DOC

Today’s Barbera d’Alba is a prestigious red wine, with a dense ruby red colour similar to that of Catholic Cardinals’ official raiment.
The perfume is ample and complex with fruity notes including blackberries, cherries, strawberries and fruit jam, but also spices such as cinnamon, vanilla and green pepper.
The flavour is full-bodied and attenuates the natural acidity of the Barbera grape. In fact, during production, small wooden barrels are used precisely for this purpose, even though some acidity is fundamental to the type of wine and necessary for its balance and enjoyability.
