Barbera d'Alba
Located in north western Italy, Barbera d’Alba is a DOC of Piedmont. This region is famous for its Barbera grape wines of cherry color and fruity yet acidic flavour. This particular DOC covers the town of Alba and the rolling Langhe hills which is often symbolized as the iconic Piedmontese landscape.

The barbera grape variety flourishes in the limestone rich clay soils located around this area, and it is said that the best barbera wines are grown from the vineyards next to Barolo. The wines from Barbera d’Alba are famed for their deep colour, high level of acidity and low tannins. The wines offer a palate of raspberries and blueberries and are known to be bold and flavourful. Because of the high acidity of these wines, it is best left to age for several years to let the oak, fruit, acidity and tannins to blend together harmoniously.
