Tot: 22.15€
SKU: BLS-BTS-SVJ-0 Category:

The Barbera Sichivej is produced with the best grapes of a fifty-year old cru. Sichivej in Piedmontese means “old vines“.

This wine is the best example of the ductility of the Barbera grape, which with the right management of the vineyard and scrupulous vinification is capable of restoring a fine and long-lived wine.

Color: intense red with light garnet reflections.

Bouquet: mature and intoxicating, enhanced by the aging in wood which makes it captivating and rich.

Taste: velvety, enveloping, warm and important, but characterized by an extraordinary drinkability.

Pairings: it is a complete rich wine. This is why it goes perfectly with an equally rich and elaborate meat-based cuisine. Its nature of great red, enveloping and structured, also makes it a perfect meditation wine, to be sipped away from meals, alone or in company.
