Giacomo Fenocchio Barbera d'Alba Superiore DOC, Piemonte, Italy 2018 (750ml)
Of the wines made from the Barbera grape, Barbera d'Alba DOC is usually the one with the longest shelf life and aging potential. The wine comes from the area around the city of Alba and is made from the Barbera grape (85-100%) with the permitted addition of the native Nebbiolo (0-15%).
Barbera d'Alba DOC is ruby red wine as young. With age, it becomes more garnet. The scent is fruity, intense and varied while the taste is full-bodied, dry and with a touch of refreshing acidity. With age, it becomes more and more balanced.
To be enjoyed with the local stew 'Bolliti', sausages, semi matured cheese and gorgonzola.
