BARBERA D’ASTI D.O.C.G
Wine Barbera d’Asti D.o.c.g. An excellent representation of the Barbera variety with a bright and consistent ruby red color, Del Martin releases an intense bouquet of rare elegance, where aromas of blackberry and blackcurrant merge with memories of dried roses. The spiciness of the wood reveals itself next, offering aromas of vanilla and slight hints of balsamic. These qualities are confirmed on the palate: dry, soft and fresh, and well-balanced by fine-grained tannins. Easy to drink, the wine goes well with meat-based pasta sauces and will also win over guests at your next barbecue.
