PIANI BARBERA D’ALBA D.O.C.
£22.10 – £132.60
The location of this vineyard, the Piani hill, has always been well-known for high quality Barbera production, and the elegance of many Barbera (a grape traditionally rich in colour and acidity but poor in tannins) from the Langhe region has a good structure which gives to this wine a particular identity.On the nose: The very fine olfactory sensations grow slowly, providing first fruity nuances of blackberry and cooked plum and subsequently vinous, of fermentation, typical of Barbera, with the right aromatic contribution of wood On the palate: Acidic impressions characterise this wine which does not hide its tannic endowment. The good structural breadth makes it particularly interesting and has a persistent length.
