Degustation notes

Ruby colour with a violet hue. Heady red berry fruit on the nose. Good power and structure on the palate; well-integrated oak withpleasant tannins. Forward fruit character in a long finish. A lovely Barbera.

Special notes

About half of all red wines from Piedmont are from Barbera, a grape that is thought to have originated there. Alba is one of the best Barbera production areas. Barbera is also grown in Lombardy, in Argentina and in the hot Central California Valley.

    Diesen Wein geniesse ich als Alltagswein. Wenn nichts spezielles ansteht ist das ein idealer Wein mit einem guten Preis/Leistungsverhältnis.

    Für diesen Preis ein trinkbarer Wein - aber auch nicht mehr!

    Der Säuregehalt dieses Weines ist m.e. zu gross.
