The wine is a vivid and intense ruby red in color with a grapey and fruity (plum and cherry) aroma. The grapes are grown on light and loose-textured soils and with modern oenological techniques, which enable producers to obtain and conserve fruit and freshness -- and to make a wine which is very pleasurable in its youth.
Your classic easy-drinking wine, Barbera d'Asti literally means Barbera grown in Asti, the vineyard soils being clay rich with calcareous marl. Don't worry about the oak, because there isn't any - and not much tannin either, instead it's all about serious bright, juicy fruit with intense cherry and almond flavours. A charming wine to wash down your pizza, it's best in its youth between now and 2019.
Deep and intense ruby red. The nose reveals a winy and fruity aroma of plum and cherry. On the palate it is fresh, fragrant, characterized by a pleasant acidity and a finish of good persistence.
For all meals, it goes well with dishes that are not too elaborate as mixed starters and typical first courses of the Piedmontese tradition.
