BARBERA D'ASTI

D.O.C.G.

Taste notes

Barbera d‘Asti goes extremely well with all the typical dishes of the Piedmont tradition, in particular with second course meat and game dishes. Thanks to its acidity and structure, it can go very well with fresh and strong cheeses, but also with structured dishes that are particularly demanding. Barbera is the “wine of meats” and memorable meals. It is an excellent companion for festive dinners and lunches such as Christmas, New Year, Epiphany or Easter. A great way to savor it is, for example, with lentils and pig’s trotter, or alternatively with roasted wild boar. Thanks to its harmonious taste, Barbera can also be a wine of meditation that can help reasoning and accompany thoughts of all kinds. It should be served preferably at a temperature of 18 – 20 ° C

Historical notes

This is a red wine with a good alcohol content, strong acidity and moderate structure. Barbera has always been one of the most popular varieties of wine in Piedmont. Not much is known about the origins of this vineyard; we only know that it was being cultivated at the end of the 1700s. You could say that in the past Barbera was the table wine drunk by most farmers, perhaps because of its rough and strong character, which was able to transmit the energy needed to overcome a hard day’s work that was common in the Langhe and Monferrato lands. This vine has good cultural and productive features and has excellent pedoclimate adaptability
