Ciabot Berton Barbera d;Alba Bricco San Biaggio 2015
This is a superb example of what Barbera can achieve. It was born in the Bricco San Biaggio vineyard from 65 year old vines. This particular plot would normally be used for Barolo production but the family decided to keep the Barbera vines which were producing something extra special.
It has a bright ruby colour with some violet notes at the edge, a sweetly fruited nose of red fruits and spices with some floral notes above. Despite the rich and powerful palate the wine has a freshness and is persistent in the aftertaste.
