Barbera d’Alba DOC Superiore is the first wine that Federico produced at the end of the 90s and which interprets as best his style. Belong to his philosophy, after Nebbiolo, Barbera is the indigenous vine which better expresses the terroir of Langhe. It’s a full-bodied wine, well structured and balanced by a good acidity. It matches well with tasty food based of red and white meat.
