SKU: FBR-BAL-000-0 Category:

Our winery also produces a small quantity of Barbera d’Alba with grapes which comes from the near village of Monforte d’Alba.

Barbera is a good red wine that has grown in importance over the years, it’s a “peppy” wine with a robust structure and it is one of a most characteristic Piedmont vine.

The work in the winery begins with the crushing of the grapes, followed by fermentation – lasting around 9 days for this wine, drawing off, and a further racking approximately 18 days later.

The wine is then stored prior to bottling in the following spring.

Colour: bright red with purplish highlights when young; deep ruby red following ageing.

Fragrance: intense and fruity; dry flavour and good body.

Taste: bitterish, though fresh, dry and well-bodied.

Temperature: 19 – 20°C.

Gastronomic’s combining: best served with strong-tasting dishes, red and grilled meats, game, and mature cheeses.
