Bricco dei Guazzi Barbera d’Asti 2015

17.99

Description

Exceptional red made in a small Italian village of just 100 people. Expressive and inviting, with sweet-spicy aromas of clove and ripe berries. On the palate the wine shows all of the variety’s hallmarks: soft tannins, bright acidity and juicy flavours of warm plum, tangy cherry and kirsch. A lovely rosso!

Pair with pork loin chops with apples and creamy butter bean mash.

Producer: Bricco dei Guazzi

A few kilometres from Casale Monferrato in the small Piemontese village of Olivola, stands Azienda (wine farm) Bricco dei Guazzi. The property stands on top of a hill ('bric' in the local dialect), encircled by 30 hectares of vineyards, and includes a century-old cedar tree (the company's symbol), restaurant and bustling wine resort. With just over a hundred or so inhabitants, it boasts a superb view of the vineyards nestling among the Monferrato hills, sketched by the hand of the vine dressers.

Wine growing has been the vibrant heart of Bricco dei Guazzi right from its early 14th century beginning. Here, each piece of land with its particular micro-environment and personality joins with a variety of grape to create a unique wine, amongst them Gavi DOCG, Chardonnay, Barbera, La Presidenta and Albarossa, all expressive of their place of origin.
