Barbera D'Asti, Sacco, 2018
Grown in the dreamy surroundings of the Monferrato hills.
Compared to Nebbiolo, the general Barbera style is more in tune with the average contemporary consumer’s tastes: Bold, deep juice, and marked with a punchy acidity. The Asti style is the typical variation of a great Barbera, lighter than its fleshier Alba counterpart.The wine’s colour is a bright, particularly intense ruby red that evolves into a garnet copper with age.

The Piedmont (or Piemonte) wine region is Italy’s largest – the thick fogs of the region known as nebbia, giving rise to Piedmont’s signature grape variety, Nebbiolo. Found in the famous Barolo and Barbaresco wines, the difficult grape produces some truly spectacular wines when handled correctly. Piedmont is more than a one trick pony though, and other red grapes fare particularly well in the region, notably Barbera and Dolcetto. Cortese is the main white grape of the region and goes into the wonderfully floral and finessed Gavi wines.
