SKU: FBR-BAL-000-0 Category: Tag:

Barbera is a “gritty” wine with a robust structure, and the grape variety is one of the most characteristic of Piedmont, closely linked to the history and culture of our region.

It is a wine that stands out for its finesse even if it retains a semblance of roughness.

The winemaking process begins with crushing followed by fermentation, which for this wine lasts about 9 days, after which there is racking and a further first pouring out after about 18 days.

Bottling is generally carried out the following spring.


It is bright red with violet hues when the wine is young; deep ruby red after aging.


The fragrance is intense and fruity.


On tasting you will find it bitterish, but full-bodied, dry and fresh.

Pairing tips

It is perfect for grilling! It is the red that the Borgogno family believes goes best with barbeque: structured, but at the same time balanced, its acidity gives balance to the fat of the meat.

Serving temperature: 18 – 19 °C.

It’s your guy if…

…You love structured wines that nevertheless retain a fruity note.
