An attractive vibrant brambly, blackcurranty character dominates, whilst a subtle, smoky flavour adds interest and soft, oak tannins offer an extra dimension to the texture. A refreshing smack of juicy acidity gives plenty of definition to the ripe fruit.

Description

Araldica produce some of the best Barbera in the world and this wine is made from the DOCG Barbera d'Asti appellation, whereas the Wine Selection Barbera is from the lower DOC area. It is produced from Araldica's low yielding older vines, which produce a rich, concentrated wine capable of ageing in oak for 12 months. Araldica is Piedmont's largest and most progressive co-operative, headed up by Winemaker/Manager Claudio Manera (whose father Livio was the co-op's first winemaker in the fifties) and his wife Lella, also a winemaker. 80% of production is bottled (an extraordinarily high percentage for a large co-operative) at the company's headquarters in the Monferrato hills, home of the old cellars and a new winery.
Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very disappointing This wine may have been a medal winner once but this vintage is not so completely avoid, usually such a high alcohol content is some indication of fruit and the barrel ageing added complexity but somehow this wine fails in both of those departments. To put it kindly "refreshing smack of juicy acidity gives plenty of definition" is slightly understating the matter. 05 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful full bodied wine This is a wonderful full bodied wine which is exceptional value for money. Would recommend time and again and will be buying it again. 14 April 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by bland This is not a wine I would choose again it has a bland almost watery taste,a little better with tomato based pasta dishes but not a lot would not recommend. 13 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice This wine slips down too easily. 13 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very nice wine Purchased this wine after reading good reviews and I must say I was pleased with the quality and the price, I found it to be very easy drinking with a lasting finish exactly what I look for in a wine, will be buying more for sure 04 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by HIGH PRAISE DESERVED I've had this wine before based on a very well known expert claiming it was so good she would serve it at home to guests. I thought it was fabulous the first time and just as good on this occasion. Pity there's no screwcap. 29 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Special Italian Italian wine is not normally my first choice,but this 2012 Barbera is excellent and real value.Depth of fruit intense with soft finish showing only a little of typical Italian kick. Highly recommend. 04 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Good Wine As I had previously sampled this product from an in-store purchase, I knew it was of excellent quality and I was in no way disappointed with my on-line purchase. Delivery was also first class. 23 November 2014
