Araldica Albera Barbera D’Asti 2011

araldica

Well-composed sweet, bright fruit, spice and smoky traces create the demeanor of a more expensive bottle. A superb value that is quite versatile at the table.

Winery: The Araldica Group is a cooperative located in the Monferrato hills in Piedmont, northwest Italy. Founded in 1954 by a small group of growers, today it is headed by winemaker Claudio Manera and consists of 200 members cultivating 900 hectares of vineyards. They are renowned for high quality, affordable Barbera, and concentrating on native grapes such as Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Cortese and Ameis.

Philosophy: To craft wines that are “both understandable and accessible. Quite simply, wine for drinking and enjoying.”

Tasting Notes: Dark red-violet in colour with aromas of cherry, earth and cigar box spice. Cherry and blackberry flavours joined earthy tree bark elements, whilst black peppercorn, vanilla and hints of smoky oak comprised the pleasantly dry finish.
