Barbera is among the most representative vines of Piedmont and covers about 30% of the 43,000 hectares of vineyard area of the region. Originally from Monferrato, the vine is cultivated mainly in the provinces of Asti and Alessandria, where it reaches its maximum expression in Barbera d’Asti, a wine that obtained the Doc in 1970 and the Docg in 2008. Barbera d’Asti is a wine linked to the ancient rural traditions that today represents a product in continuous evolution, which grows following the new knowledge in the viticultural and enological field.
