Barbera d’Alba is the everyday wine for people living in the Alba area because of its versatility, Barbera d’Alba not to confuse with Barbera d’Asti
, is a red wine that pair well with a lot of dishes, from a pizza to spaghetti.
Our Barbera d’Alba, made with handpicked Barbera
grapes from vineyards located in the town of Barolo, home of the king of Italian wine, is a very good example, a fresh, medium bodied red wine with aromas of ripe fruit and scents of vanilla on the nose, a very balanced palate, soft, elegant and nice acidity.
Collina San Ponzio started a century ago, they had until Pietro Balocco, the third generation, took over, been selling their own wine and grape to some of the best Piedmont producers. Only with Pietro and now Federico is son, a very young and talented wine maker, have decided to bottle their own wines and are creating some of the most interesting Piedmont wines, clean, with a classic approach.
Their production is very limited, but their vineyards are scattered in some of the most vocated area, a lot of work for them, but great wines for us to enjoy. Their Nebbiolo vineyards used in the making of their Barolos, are located in La Morra, one of the best areas for Barolo. We love their wines and we love them, they are as passionate as we are.
