Barbera d'Asti 5 Vignés 2016

La Morandina

Intense ruby red color. Ethereal, soft, with sweet notes that remind of black cherries, cherries and small fruits from the forest, with a final hint of cocoa and tobacco. Fresh and velvety, it respects the olfactory sensations with a very delicate acidity. Complex yet elegant and easy to drink.

The comment of our oenologist

Barbera 5 Vigne. Not all winemakers need to research the limits or make extreme wines. This is a Barbera to approach the wine world; easy but not ordinary, expressive, to be opened and immediately drunk. One should use a glass with a medium-small cup and serve this wine at 16°C in the summer either for lunch or with appetizers. However, this wine also has substance and character to become a more important wine: served at 18°C at a dinner with friends, making sure one has more than one bottle at home.
