Araldica Barbera d’Asti ‘Ceppi Storici’
Barbera often plays second fiddle to Nebbiolo in Piemonte, but it's a grape which is much more approachable in its youth. Warm, spicy aromas of blueberries and plums, with subtle smoky notes. The palate combines generous ripe fruit with lively acidity, with juicy cherry characters and spicy notes beneath. Soft oak tannins offer an extra dimension to the texture. A refreshing smack of fruity acidity on the finish gives plenty of definition to the ripe fruit.
