A fresh, vibrant and juicy red with aromas of sweet ripe plums and cherries. The palate shows the fruit-forward characters of cherry and wild plum and the ripe rounded finish is balanced by fresh bramble acidity.

This wine is a rediscovery of the old tradition of using partially-dried grapes to add richness and concentration. The Barbera grapes were grown on southwest-facing slopes in the Monferrato hills, at 250-400m altitude. Soils here are clay and limestone. Following the traditional passito technique - a portion of ripe Barbera grapes (around 20%), left on the vine for nearly a month after the main harvest to sun dry, were blended with fresh Barbera grapes before fermentation. This sweetens, enriches and softens the resulting acidity.

The name and neckerchief around the bottle represent the 'Fazzoletto Rosso' worn by Italian resistance fighters during World War 2, symbolising freedom and rebellion. Packaged with three distinct labels featuring: Michaelangelo's Statue of David, the Statue of Abundance (Trevi Fountain) and the Statue of Augustus of Prima Porta - all wearing the red neckerchief.

A good match for roast poultry or game, or rich stews and pasta dishes.

Great wine from one of my favourite regions

An excellent wine and great value, lots of cherry and plum after taste. No harsh tannins a very easy drinking wine. Great with pasta, red meat or cheese but easy to drink on its own. Enjoyed it so much have just got 12 more bottles
