Why we love it
A typical Barbera D’Asti, with a rich fruity bouquet and a lovely acidity, a light and refreshing red wine made from one of the Barbera d’Asti specialist.
The Barbera d’Asti is the everyday wine of the locals, the wine that is drunk to accompany starters, first courses, red meat dishes and mature cheeses
The artisan who made it
The L’Armangia winery have been making wines in Canelli, Piedmont, from 1850, and today they are amongst the top wineries of the area particularly with regard to growing and producing Barbera d’Asti and Moscato D’Asti. Ignazio, the owner and winemaker, is not your conventional winemaker, he knows his grapes as if they are his own sons and daughters and he knows what they can produce and he firmly believes in the Barbera d’Asti grape, but also grow a variety of other grapes including Albarossa, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and a very small vineyard of Pinot Nero that makes an amazing wine.
