About… Barbera.

After a year of aging in barrique, the Barbera can boast the name “Superiore”. This wine, obtained from the careful selection of the grapes, has an intense red colour with hints of violets and blueberries. The production area is the Monferrato area. The fresh acidity and juiciness of the Barbera grape make this wine perfect to drink immediately, while its structure allows it an aging capacity of 8-10 years.
