During the summer, Grandpa’s breakfasts always consisted of a good slice of salami and a glass of Barbera d’Alba.
Here, this is how we want to introduce you to this wine. No frills, capable of surprising even with the easiest of pairings.
The color is ruby red with garnet hues, which become more evident as the years go by.
The aroma is frank, delicate, vinous, intense and persistent.
It is warm, full, complex, dry and harmonious.
We were talking about simplicity, well, try it with a good rustic Gorgonzola sandwich.
Avoid: most fresh fruit, but remember that peaches drowned in Barbera are just fine.
It’s your guy if…
…In the goblet you look for the call of fruitiness.
