Alasia Piemonte Barbera, 2016
Araldica are one of the most respected producers of Barbera and this quintessential Piemontese red is integral to the Alasia range. Fabulously food friendly - it can be served lightly chilled too.
|How it's made||
Produced from Barbera grapes cultivated in vineyards in the Monferrato hills in the south of the province of Asti. The south west facing vineyards are at altitudes between 250 to 400m above sea level and the soil is a combination of clay and limestone. Grapes are hand harvested at the start of October. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks between 77-86F. Pressed when dry and racked into stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation. The wine is then matured for 4-6 months in stainless steel tanks.
A fresh, juicy red with aromas of raspberries, plums and cherries. These characters follow through to the palate, which has considerable fruit weight along with soft tannins and a very savory spiciness. Refreshing acidity on the finish.
Fantastic with pizza, pasta and plenty of parmesan cheese!
