  4. Barbera d`Alba Superiore La Lena DOC

The wine is made from 100% Barbera sourced from the La Lena vineyard in Neviglie. The name "La Lena" comes from the name Elena and pays tribute to the grandmother and sister of the owner Mr. Valter Bera, who are both named Elena.

Tasting Notes

Vivid ruby red in color, this wine is driven by its black cherry fruit-forward character, both in its aromas and flavors. On the palate, La Lena displays crisp acidity, balanced by medium weight and fine tannins.

Food Pairing

This wine makes a perfect choice for grilled pork tenderloin or roasted duck breast--a nice addition to any holiday meal.
