2013 Braida Montebruna Barbera d'Asti

Description

Rated two glasses (Due Bicchieri) by Italy's famous Gambero Rosso magazine, this Braida Montebruna Barbera d'Asti is the product of a cooler growing season in Piedmont in 2013, meaning the heat-loving Barbera grape has retained a little more acidity than normal. The nett effect is very pleasing though, for we wouldn't be lovers of Italian wine if we balked at a little acidity! It's exactly what makes wines like this so food friendly - try this with fatty slow-cooked meats or classic Italian fare between now and 2019.

Smells

A hint of black truffle with oak and black cherry fruit, exotic spices and violet florals.

Tastes

Deeply fruited and elegant with a tarry, leathery note and spicy florals giving way to tart cherry and blackberry fruits and a long finely tannic finish. A thoroughly satisfying Barbera that will come alive with food - enjoy with pizza and tomato-based pastas through 2019.
