Piemonte Barbera DOC Vintage 2020

Tasting Notes

Our Barbera Piemonte is a wine to drink young, fermenting in steel tanks where it remains until the bottling.

For this reason, it shows a bright ruby red colour and vinous and spicy aromas.

Balanced, dry and pleasantly effervescent at the palate.

Easy match with all traditional recipes of Piedmont, as well as salami, risotto, and boiled meat.
