About him: a splendid Barbera obtained from 40 year-old vines and located 300 meters above sea level. Ruby red in color, it's fruity, with references to the undergrowth with its small wild, floral, rose and violet fruits; in the end there is an almost territorial mineral note. On the palate it's soft, fresh and savory, with an almost crunchy fruit and a convincing drinkability. Exceptional drinkability!!!
