Araldica ‘Albera’ Barbera d’Asti 2013


Smooth and well balanced, a consistently fantastic value from a cooperative in Piedmont.

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. ‘Alberta’ is the ancient name for the Barbera grape.

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

Tasting Notes: Dark garnet in colour with aromas of dark berries, toasted oak and hints of earthy hay barn. Glossy blackberry and red currant flavours are supported by cigar box spice and earth notes, whilst black peppercorn along with hints of dark chocolate and smoke comprise the pleasantly dry finish.
