Piazzo, Barbera D'Alba
There are areas on the hills of San Rocco Seno d’Elvio and Guarene where priority is given to the Barbera vine, Vineyards from which a strictly traditional winemaking process produces this blend: a Barbera d’Alba showing shades of ruby and scarlet, with frequent violet nuances.
Its expansive, stimulating nose is markedly fruity, with notes reminiscent of plum and jam. Floral overtones of rose petals accompany slight spicy hints of pepper and cinnamon. The taste appeals for its great structure, warm body and long aromatic finish.
Barbera d’ Alba makes a good match for hors-d’oeuvres and well-structured starters like lasagne, and delicate or grilled meat dishes.
