Barbera d’Alba Sanmicè®, Teo Costa

New

Iold inhabitants of Castellinaldo say that “the mother of Barbera vines had always lived in the site of San Michele (Sanmicè in our dialect) since in the beginning of time”. Perhaps our winery has been a little overconfident but long ago we decided to invest a lot in this very place at Castellinaldo and in its vocation for Barbera.Sometimes we seem to forget our past and we feel proud of our present glory only, but it is not by pure chance that all over Piemonte the most widespread grape variety is the Barbera. Now we are all finally and fully convinced that Barbera is an enourmous potential resource in our wine world - it has structure, colour, longevity and elegance which make it a complete wine - and a very special one, too
