Barbara D'Alba Superiore DOC

 14,95

“In dark alleys, at shady liquor stores who don’t look closely, you can still find them: two-liter bottles with screw caps, full of rust-colored barbera for a budget price.

Elsewhere, in the chic shopping street and in the genteel auction house, in the millionaire’s cellar, there is a barbera that is purple in color, powerful with alcohol, with an aroma of a lot of oak.

Here they know better. Barbera, that’s the everyday wine, so it doesn’t have to be that fancy. But we do want to drink something delicious every day. So they make barbera as it should be, and as you rarely find them unfortunately. Fragrant of juicy cherries, fine in line, graceful aftertaste, but without denying his honest farming heritage.”

Vinification

The Barbera D’Alba is a wine derived from grapes grown near the village of Alba, in Piedmont. In recent years, this wine has been gaining traction in a region where Barolo is predominant. The grapes of this Barbera D’Alba are hand-picked in the fourth week of September.

Colour

The wine has a ruby red color with violet reflections.

Odor

On the nose, Monchiero’s Barbera D’Alba is intense and delicate with notes of raspberries and blackberries.

Taste impression

On the palate, it is warm, full-bodied, savory and harmonious, with a round, fine and elegant expression.

Culinary advice

Combines extremely well with light cheeses (for example from the region) and regional dishes such as truffle pasta and pasta tajarin. Furthermore, it goes well with various dishes with ravioli and mushrooms and many meats such as cow, pig and lamb.
