Barbera is the most widely-grown variety in Piedmont. The qualities distinguishing the Barbera grown in the Barbera d’Alba appellation, which encompasses both the right (Langhe) and left (Roero) sides of the River Tanaro are its finesse, body and elegance.

This particular wine is made from the estate’s younger vineyards, which ripen early in October. The vinification lasts for around 15 days, and is followed by a short period of maturation: 70% in stainless steel, and the remaining 30% in oak for one year. The result is a ruby-red wine with a fragrant, vinous nose, and a smooth, full-bodied palate that offers a magnificent sensation of freshness. A product that could be defined as an easy-drinking, mealtime wine, perfect for serving every day.
