Deep ruby red colour, acquiring elegant garnet highlights with age; bouquet of red fruit, bitter chocolate and coffee which as time passes becomes more spicy with “wild” notes. The flavour is dry and robust, enhanced by dense body and roundedness; full of character.

From the 2014 vintage, our Barbera d’Asti became a Nizza DOCG, duly complying with all the criteria stipulated by the regulatory guidelines for this new denomination.
