Our Barbera d’Alba is obtained vinifying together the grapes of Bricco Novara, Bricco Leoni, and Ca’ di Carli.
It shows a particularly deep colour with ruby tones and purple reflexes.
The important aromas develop in rich sensations of coffee, spicy notes, such as pink pepper and red juniper, ending in the fruity notes of cherry and plums.
Good structure and strong character with balanced acidity on the palate. It is enriched with a long and refined finish, leaving hints of vanilla and wood.
The best matches with food are with meat sauces, and important main courses enhancing its richness in alcohol and good acidity.
