Alasia Piemonte Barbera 2021

Alasia Piemonte Barbera 2021

Piemonte, Italy 

14% ABV 

Araldica are one of the most respected producers of Barbera and this quintessential Piemontese red is integral to the Alasia range. Fabulously food friendly and it can be served lightly chilled too.

Tasting notes

A fresh, sappy red with aromas of plum and raspberry. Bright, youthful fruit with notes of sour cherry, and a savoury spiciness. Delicious food wine with vibrant fruit, some grip and refreshing acidity on the finish.

Food match

Fantastic with pizza and pasta and plenty of Parmesan!

Production

Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 25 - 30 degrees C. Pressed when dry and racked to stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation.
