Barbera d’Asti Superiore Giulio Cesare

Description

Barbera d’Asti is a  prestigious wine, rich of flawless colours that generally recall  to the purple ruby, just like the cardinal’s robes;
the perfume is ample and complex, reavealing hints of ripe fruit as blackberry, cherry,  strawberry, red fruits jam and developing spiced aromas and flavour of cinnamon, vanilla, green pepper.
The taste is full-bodied.

History

“Vitis vinifera Montisferratensis” is the ampelografic appellation that during the 1800’s was attributed to Barbera vine, a wine grape variety that  has given to Piedmont, depending on different time periods, great problems and endless satisfactions. Its Piedmontese origin is sure to the point, it’s reckon, it was born from a spontaneous cross of older vines. Nevertheless, one thing is certain, its presence is dated back to 1800.
