Wine Description

(2013 Vintage) The Barbera d’Alba is the most traditional wine among Piedmont wines. The grapes come from vineyards of mainly calcareous clay soils, alternating with layers of whitish marl, able to ensure the wine an excellent structure and to equip it with a vigorous but balanced character. The product specification allows for the vinification of Barbera d’Alba also with a small percentage (up to 15%) of Nebbiolo d’Alba, in order to increase finesse and elegance. The Cantine dei Marchesi di Barolo uses this opportunity, together with the selection of the locations of the vineyards and the attention to the perfect maturation of the grapes, the wine achieves more softness and structure, but with low acidity.
