Barbera d’Alba Doc

Barbera is the wine of the Piedmontes tradition: rude and stubborn,  quiet, discreet and powerful.
This wine calls to mind the ancient Piedmontese traditions, when it accompanied the peasants to work and animated the evenings in the tavern, after the tiring days in the vineyards and in the fields.….
The revaluation of the wine and the technical evolution of winemaking have allowed, in recent years, to exalt his intensity and power, also suitable for long aging.
Alba is the City that give the name of him, that today has a big role about the red wines of Roero’s area.
