A bright, rich ruby color with intense purplish highlights.

On the palate it is well structured, fresh and the acidity is excellently balanced, the tannins texture is embracing and flavors remind you of sour cherries, blackberries and prunes. this versatile wine goes well with starters, meaty sauces and also red or wild meat. It does justice to strong cheeses, savory or seasoned

Notes

Produced from one of the last archaic vineyard of Langhe region, an openair museum from a time gone by, with vines older than a hundred years. The vines are onto 100% Vitis Vinifera roots and replicate by propagation. They have therefore maintained, over the decades, the original Barbera characteristics. The small plot, situated in Berri near La Morra, has an excellent exposure and sandy-chalky terrain which guarantees a natural protection from Philloxera. This mixes with the intriguing vine resiliency and its most typical charms imparted from the microclimate and a particularly favorable altitude. The low production per hectare guarantees an intensely rare and rich organoleptic concentration. The wine is refined in oak casks which slowly develop all primary aromas. Pleasant and refined, complex even as a young wine, it is not afraid to be aged in bottle, expressing its solid uniqueness even over the years
