Barbera d’Asti DOCG

Description

Grown on the well  exposed hills of Asti zone, Barbera d’Asti, is a prestigious wine,  intense, vigorous, alcoholic to the nose. The vinous hints that distinguish it in youth are accompanied by a large bouquet of red fruits, crunchy at first and ripe afterwards, such as cherry, blackberry, raspberry and plum. The taste is consistent and full-bodied.

History

Barbera d’Asti entered the group of the Piedmontese vines thanks to its insertion in the first version of the “Ampelography”, compiled in 1798 by the Count Nuvolone. After a long period in which it has continued to animate the surrounding territories, Barbera d’Asti has known a new raising beginning from the ’80s, thanks to determined winemakers increasing its total quality  through their great work  both in field and in wine cellar.
