Barbera d’Alba DOC Superiore


Interesting wine, in this case, mentioned Superior because vinified and aged differently from the traditional one. Rich colours that recall the ruby-purple; It has a good broad and composite fragrance, with fruity notes of blackberry, cherry, strawberry and red fruit jam and spices such as vanilla. The full-bodied flavour attenuates the characteristic acidity typical of the grape. They are used successfully in small wooden casks, to give the wine softness and balance of the final taste.
