The top Barbera from the leading producer in the Colli Tortonesi (southeast Piemonte), and one of a handful of truly age-worthy Barberas. This wine, demonstrates that Walter Massa is an able and versatile “Barberista”
This is an important Barbera with the structure and complexity to accompany stronger dishes, including stews and game. It’s also a perfect vino da meditazione — i.e., a wine to open at the end of a meal and drink slowly with a good cheese, good friends, and good conversation.
All the classic Barbera cherry and raspberry fruit, with the grape’s high acidity honed into a tightly-knit complexity. One of the few Barberas that age and become more complex.
