DOC Barbera d’Alba Superiore
Piedmonte, Italy
Crissante Alessandria
Red Wine
Barbera d’Alba 100%
ABV 15.0%

The big brother of the previous Barbera d’Alba, this is refined in the “Barolo style” meaning French oak barrels (tonneaux) of 7q for 12 months (added designation of Superiore). Ruby with garnished nuances, this offers red fruits, blackcurrant and berry, licorice, and mature cherry. Rich and harmonious, full bodied and an exceptionally long aftertaste.
