100% Barbera by Malvirà is a UK-exclusive masterpiece from Piemonte. Gold Medal by Vini Buoni
This 2006 vintage is a genuinely premium Italian wine made for the highly competitive domestic market, and not for export. We met with Roberto, the owner of Malvirà, who personally recommended it. This wine fared very well during awards season, receiving the highest accolades: including “two glasses” from Gambero Rosso and a Gold Medal from Vini Buoni to name just a few. The grapes were hand-harvested in October, and fermented in stainless steel before maturing in oak for 20 months.
Malvirà is the most influential producer in Roero, and possibly the most innovative as well. Their winery is organic certified and carbon neutral, constructed deep underground with geothermal heating and cooling systems.
Tasting notes: Deep, ruby colour. Pronounced aromas of red cherry, dried plums and cranberry, vanilla, coconut and chocolate. On the palate, it is dry and full-bodied, with high acidity, soft medium tannins and a complex, rich flavour.
Awards (2006 vintage): 2 glasses: Gambero Rosso | Gold Medal: Vini Buoni | 3 Bottles: Le Guide de L’Espresso
