How it's made

Alasia Barbaresco is produced from a cellar selection of Araldica's best barrels. The grapes are hand-harvested in early October. The Nebbiolo grapes are de-stemmed and crushed to four small fermenters for 12 days, with daily pumping-over. This ensures good color and flavor extraction, but avoids over extraction of the abundant Nebbiolo tannins. The wine is drained off at dryness and the skins transferred to a small press. After pressing, the wine is settled for two days. The wine is then racked to Slavonian oak barriques, where it is aged for two years. It is then racked from oak and gently natural egg white fined. Another six months of maturation in bottle is completed before release.

Tasting Notes

Black fruit aromas, with some savory spicy and gentle floral characters. Complex and richly flavored with black cherry, bramble and a hint of violet on the palate. Good structure and fine tannins lead to a long rich finish.

Food Match

Fantastic with roasted and grilled meats.
