2018 – Barbera d’Alba D.o.c. Superiore

 15,90

Today Barbera d’Alba is a prestigious wine whose rich colours generally tend towards the purplish ruby of a cardinal vestment; it has a full composite aroma, whose fruit notes suggest blackberry, cherry, strawberry and jam made from red fruit. In the Superiore version, these sensations alternate and blend with cocoa and vanilla.
