This is just what Barbera is all about. There are some producers in Piemonte that knows how to do it, often we find them in Asti. If you treat this grape with the expositions it demands and let the vines grow old you get wines of beautiful fruit that comes with the perfect acidity and structure.

Fantastic Barbera d’Asti from great producer Braida! 2011 is also a topvintage for the Barbera-grape. Superb acids in the mouth, full of sour cherries, some dust and a great amount of oak. Long very long finish. A little too much alcohol 15,5%, but what a wine this is😋
