Does exactly what it says on the label - perfect barbecue wine! (even in the winter, if you're brave enough)
Grape Varieties: Barbera
Style: Rich, fruity
Drink By: 2013
Delicious 100% Barbera from the famed Piemonte region in Northern Italy.
Fresh, juicy and filled with plum and black cherry fruit, balanced with good depth and structure. Great with burgers, steaks, sausages and kebabs - the perfect barbecue wine! Would also match well with meaty pasta dishes.
Araldica is Piemonte's largest and most progressive co-operative yet retains a small, family run company feel, thanks to the inspired guidance of winemaker/manager Claudio Manera (whose father Livio was the co-op's first winemaker in the 1950s) and his wife Lella, also a winemaker and in charge of Quality Control.
80% of production is bottled at the company's headquarters in the Monferrato hills, home of the old caves and a new winery, operating since 2000. This is complimented by two estates, each with it's own vinification cellar, La Battistina in Gavi (where Araldica is the region's largest vineyard owner) and Il Cascinone.
Claudio believes that effective management can preserve that most important concern for the customer value for money: "Our intention has never been to follow an idle dream of making a great wine that is then impossible to find or difficult to afford. Our broader ambition has been to provide a range that is both understandable and accessible. Quite simply, wine for drinking and enjoying."
