Barbera d'Asti Superiore, l'Armangia (75cl)

Why we love it

A fantastic Barbera d’Asti Superiore where the typical characteristics of the wine, fruitiness and a lively acidity are, thanks to the wood ageing, elevated by a complex and elegant palate with firm, soft tannins.

Barbera d’Asti is often wrongly considered the poor brother of the Barbera d’Alba, due to its higher acidity that if not balanced could make the wine unpleasant to drink, but this Barbera d’Asti Superiore is certainly not your typical Barbera d'Asti. This red wine is richer, more complex, more structured, made by blending two different Barbera wines, one aged in steel tanks and another aged in oak to avoid the oak to overtake the fruitiness and freshness that are caractheristics of the grape.

Barbera d‘Asti wines have several shades and when properly made can be great wines, as good as all other Piedmont reds, read about the grape on our blog.

This Barbera d'Asti Superiore pairs perfectly medium aged cheeses and roasts but also charcuterie.

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.

This is an excellent wine for foods such as a lighter red meat (lamb cutlets) or a creamy sauce. Somewhat fruity but with a very nice acidity that pairs well with food that appreciates the mild acidity. Light in tannins, fruity and medium bodied, a very nice, well made wine and highly recommended, especially at this price.

Wow, what can I say? This really isn't your typical barbera, it is so much more, this one is much richer than any other barbera I have drunk and the smell is wonderful. Me and my wife drank this with our lunch a few days ago and it made our meal so much more enjoyable. We'll definitely be buying another bottle sometime in the near future
