Enticing scents of fragrant blue flower, forest berry and Alpine herb take center stage in this elegant and structured red. The vibrant palate delivers juicy red cherry, raspberry compote, star anise and tobacco hints alongside bright acidity and polished tannins. Impeccably balanced and delicious, it also offers incredible value. Drink through 2029.

Delicious and lively for the 2014 barbera with blueberry and lemon character. Medium to light body. Vibrant finish. Drink now.

The 2014 Barbera d'Asti Montebruna is a fresh and easy expression. The wine offers bright fruit in a very likable and less formal package. Primary fruit aromas of black cherry and blackberry give the wine softness and sweet intensity. The mouthfeel reinforces this impression thanks to its soft layers and its natural succulence. Barbera d'Asti is one of Italy's most food-friendly wines. It pairs with pizza, pasta and meat. In other words, it is a full menu wine.
