Tasting :

Purplish in colour, on the nose the wine has pronounced black fruit, plum and strawberry jam, violet and mild almond aromas. It is full-bodied in the mouth thanks to the mildly bitter Dolcetto, which balances out the residual sugars of the Barbera and its characteristic acidity,

Wine Pairing :

It is a wine which goes well with all courses, from starters to full flavoured pasta and rice dishes and fairly mild flavoured meat dishes.
