Damilano Barbera d'Asti
| Wine Enthusiast 89 points (Nov 2015)
This zesty red opens with aromas of iris, rose petal, violet and wild red berry. The bright palate offers juicy wild cherry, raspberry and a hint of cake spice alongside lively acidity. It’s made to be enjoyed young, so drink soon.

Evoking candied cherry, raspberry and violet flavors, this vivid red is crisp and firm on the moderately long finish. Drink now. 11,667 cases made.
|Wine maker notes
|Produced by Damilano since 2008, Barbera d’Asti represents a new viticultural challenge: growing the most important native varietal in Piedmont.
The production of Barbera d’Asti is the fruit of a recent rental agreement which grants Damilano vineyard management rights over a 17 hectare vineyard in Casorzo in the province of Asti, an area in which Barbera has been grown since the 1800s.
This 100% Barbera wine is produced from a Monferrato vineyard that is 20 to 30 years old. The soil contains white marl and tends to be calcareous.
This wine has a red color with intense purple tones and a fruit nose with light spice notes. It has a persistent flavor reminiscent of currants, violets, cherries and vanilla.
