Producer’s notes

Elegance and austerity. The centuries of history and agricultural tradition that precede our time find a perfect expression in this vine species, which has extremely ancient origins. The Barbera is one of the noblest Italian grapes and it is known worldwide. Through this wine the history of the Piacentino territory comes into our glass with its flavours of earth and red fruits, well harmonized with the flavour of wood, eternal companion of every good wine.
