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 out of 5 by Cheap but good quality Usually, I have to spend more to drink a good wine. This wine is nice for taste and character. 10 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Intense & Enjoyable I am no expert ....but when you drink wine randomly as I do, you notice when a drink hits the high spots more than others. Now much of my enjoyment will, no doubt, be down to personal taste preferences however this particular wine includes complex flavour ..was it eucalyptus? .....as well as a clarity of taste. This is my first review. Recommended buy at recent offer price ...remarkable value. 05 November 2015
