Product information

They say good things come to those who wait. And this coveted Barbera d'Asti can only be sold from March 1 the year after the grapes are harvested. It keeps well, developing rich, bold flavours over time (though after a year of waiting, we'd understand if you'd rather drink it now).

History
Araldica aim to make expressive, yet uncomplicated Barbera from good quality grapes and careful vinification techniques. Attention to detail in both the vineyards and the winery, ensures the production of top quality wines, however it is the experience Araldica possess that allows them to be truly unique.
Regional Information
The Monferrato hills are home to some of the best quality grapes and vineyards in Piemonte. The warmer, southwest facing slopes are used to grow Barbera, allowing the grapes to achieve phenolic ripeness and balance the natural acidity with weight of fruit and tannin.
Current Vintage
2014
Vinification Details
The grapes were de-stemmed and crushed, before undergoing temperature controlled stainless steel fermentation. The wine was then aged in a mixture of Italian Botti and French oak barriques for 12 months

Barbera from where?

Average product. Smells, looks and tastes as any average cheap wines sold in any supermarket. It should be a superior one produced in limited vineyards in the Asti area, Piedmont. This was the main reason I bought it, although I was also enticed by the reduction. Unfortunately, it's another no no. No sweetness, no velvet. I could have given 2 stars if it wasn't from where it says it comes from.

This is a truly lovely wine, full of sunshine and happiness. Deep in colour and rich yet smooth in taste.
