De Forville Barbera d'Alba 2017
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
This vibrant, full-bodied red is a blend of grapes harvested in parcels spread amongst the three communes of Barbaresco, Neive and Alba. Included as the primary source are grapes harvested in the cru "Ga'Grosso" in Barbaresco. The grapes are crushed and are then fermented in stainless steel for almost two weeks after which the wine is racked into oak barrels and "botti" for one year prior to bottling. The average age of the vines is 30 years. COLOR: bright and deep ruby red. PERFUME: vinous, fruity, with notes of fresh fruit, blackberry, jam, spicy and toasted aromas. TASTE: full and round, with balanced acidity and freshness. FOOD PAIRINGS: perfect with any dish, especially with pasta, meat, game and fresh or ripe cheeses. Serve at room temperature if the wine has aged for max. 1 year in the bottle, at about 18°C after the first year of ageing in the bottle. Download the pdf file
