Barbera wine

Oak barrels with Barbera wine in Monferrato

Barbera wine is famous for its crisp red fruit flavours. It's a very popular grape in Piedmont – and accounts for nearly half the amount of vines grown in the region. It shows its best side in the Monferrato and Barbera d'Asti DOCGs. Another excellent example of the wine comes from the Barbera d'Alba DOC.

Barbera grapes for premium wines are always picked by hand in October. Depending on the winemaker's style, it is fermented in either stainless steel or oak. It's always matured in oak barrels for a year or more to develop aromas of cinnamon, vanilla, coconut, chocolate and leather.

What does Barbera wine taste like? High in acid and low on tannin, Barbera is typically light and refreshing. Although it has a dark colour it tastes like wild cherries and raspberries. This is complemented by notes of blueberry, underpinned by warming vanilla and spice from oak ageing.
