Classic grape variety from the finest Piemontese traditions, the Barbera from the hills of Monforte manifests itself in a unique way. This wine lends itself well to aging and over the years tends to acquire both structure and character. Passing through barriques and maturing in the bottle contribute to enriching the wine with softness and elegance, smoothing off the rough edges typical of wines produced with this type of rustic but fascinating character.
A wine which is always generous on the nose, exuberant in its notes of red and blackberries and violet. Passing a barrique aging gives it greater complexity and a touch of vanilla spice, tobacco and black pepper which complete the aromatic profile of this wine. On the palate a brief, seering acidity gives way to a full bodied, warm wine. Barbera seduces with its breadth, full-bodiedness and structure, regulated and contrasted by the acidity which is typical of this vine. Oak aging smoothes its characteristics to create a pleasingly fresh and balanced wine.
