Barbera d'Alba DOC
I have always loved the Barbera grape, younger brother to the great Nebbiolo grape and found that it produces lovely, spicy, wines with great character that can be enjoyed young. This wine, produced by Bosio Vini comes from Santo Stefano Belbo in the heart of the Langhe district of Piedmont. This is a modern style wine with juicy savoury fruit offset by 18 months aging in French oak barrels. Named after the founder of the company, the wine has a rich, purple colour, sweet fruit, good spice and flavours of soft, ripe, sweet plums. It is spicy and long in the finish. Drink with game and roast meats from now for the next five years.
