Why we love it
This is a typical, traditional, Barbera D’Asti, with a fruity bouquet and a lovely acidity, a light and refreshing red wine made from one of the grape specialist. This Barbera d'Alba has an intense nose, rich, fruity, filled with stone fruits (mostly cherries), strawberries, violets, the palate is smooth, balanced, with a very pleasant acidity, characteristic of the wine and main difference with its close neighbour, the Barbera d'Alba.
Barbera d’Asti is the everyday wine of the inhabitants of Asti and province and is a very versatile red wines, from starter to main courses, from pizza to omelet, this is a wine that can pair many dishes and courses.
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.
