Barbera d'Alba Superiore DOC, Tenuta Baràc, Alba
The grape of the people...
Tastes like: Dark Fruits. Plum. Cherry. Vanilla. Clove. Long Finish. Clean. Fresh.
This outstanding organic Barbera has been imported by Chilled & Tannin, direct from the cellars of Tenuta Baràc in Piemonte – so you won’t find these bodacious bottles anywhere else.
This Superiore Barbera d'Alba is a scintillating example. Intense red and dark fruits abound with a hint of vanilla and spice from 12 months in large oak barrels. It has a warm and satisfying mouthfeel. It's everything a Barbera should be and more.
If Nebbiolo is the grape of kings, then Barbera is the grape of the people, prized for centuries by the locals in this region – and the organic and traditional winemaking philosophy of Tenuta Baràc means this is as true an expression of the grape as you’ll find.
Located in the heart of the Barbaresco hills, the vineyards and in a unique spot in a green basin similar to a natural amphitheatre, where vineyards, woods, and luxuriant nature alternate.
Biodiversity and sustainable farming is central to the production and this wine was produced during their conversation to organic certification meaning zero herbicides, pesticides of nasty chemicals were used.
