Monferrato sits at an important intersection in NW Italy and Southern Europe. Protected by the Alps to the North and the Mediterranean sea to the south, the area has long been a seat of European power dating back to the Holy Roman empire. Today, food and wine are focal points of the economy. The larger Monferrato area encompasses well know regions including Alba and Asti. If you've ever had authentic white truffles, they are often foraged in this special area every October.
This wine is 100% Barbera, produced by La Bollina. Andrea Bernardini is a passionate consultant winemaker who has hit numerous home runs. He graduated from Pisa, one of the best schools of oenology in Italy, in 2007. He earned his chops at Poggio Bonelli and Ruffino in Tuscany and trained in South Africa, Romania and Greece. After several years of experience, he is now a flying winemaker blending tradition and modern techniques to obtain high-quality wines with respect to the expression of the different grapes and terroir in which he works.
If you're looking for an any-time wine, rich with blueberry fruit, a touch of herbs, and mocha, this is the wine for you. Very little oak on this wine makes it a perfect match for a variety of foods or on its own.
Tasting Notes: This is 100% pure Barbera. Mostly stainless with a touch of oak, allows the fruit to shine. If you love figs, blueberry, and blackberry flavors with a tense backbone of smooth tannins, and mocha, then you'll love this wine.
