Barbera has long filled-in the low slopes and valleys of Northern Italy. It’s considered a lesser wine to Nebbiolo and, therefore, doesn’t earn the best grape-growing real estate (such as South-facing slopes on hills above the ‘nebbia’ or fog). Despite its lowly position, Barbera is the quintessential ‘wine of the people,’ it’s meant to be enjoyed young.

Tasting Notes: Barbera d'Alba shows aromas of red berries and red fruits on the nose, with spices and liquorice in the background. Intense, fruity, and round, with raspberries and cherry flavors, mellow tannins and a lovely finish.
