  4. Barbera d`Alba DOC

Made from 100% Barbera d'Alba grown in limestone and clay soils in various estate vineyards in the Trifolera zone, which is named after the prized white truffles that can be found nearby. The grapes are harvested in late September and then vinified and aged entirely in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes

Ruby-red in color when young, this wine shows lovely aromas of crushed red cherries and plum fruit. On the palate, the wine is crisp, well-rounded and flavorful.

Food Pairing

A perfect choice for lasagna or tomato-sauced pastas, brick-fired pizzas, or slow cooked, smoked tenderloin.
