Vibrant, fruit forward Barbera from Alba. This region tends to produce a food-friendly style with slightly more structured and sappy than Barbera d'Asti.

Souced from vines grown on clay-chalk soils around Alba, and the neighbouring villages that form the Langhe plain and part of Roero. Guyot-trained with a vine density of 3,500 vines per hectare. There is a green harvest in May and July. No irrigation is used. Grapes are hand harvested in the middle of September. The Barbera grapes are sorted and selected, crushed softly and the stalks separated. The must is piped into steel tanks where it is fermented at a temperature of about 27 degrees for 10 days. Production continues with a lighter fermentation until the consumption of sugars is complete. The wine then spends around 6/8 months in steel tanks before bottling. This allows the wine to settle, yet retain vibrant fruit character.

A vibrant, ruby-red wine with intense aromas of fresh, juicy fruit, such as ripe plum and morello cherries. Some nice developing spicy notes, with bright blueberries and plum on the palate. A dry, medium bodied wine with balanced acidity on the finish.

Should work a treat with a thin crust pizza topped with pepperoni or salami and heartier vegetables such as courgette and artichoke.
