Description

This Braida Montebruna Barbera d'Asti has the richness and body of a Syrah with the lithe acidity, fine tannins and elegance of a topline Pinot Noir. The texture of this Barbera is velvety and the black fruits are present in abundance. Braida are legendary in the Piedmont region of Northern Italy for the Barbera inspired reds. A single vineyard wine... Montebruna spends a judicious 12-months in large 20, 35 & 50 hectolitre barrels to enhance textural mouth feel and complexity without corrupting its velvety dark fruits with excessive oak.

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 spices 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 2025.
