Barbera D'Alba Roddi

Barbera d'Alba Roddi

Fruity notes

Barbera used to be regarded as a humble wine in the North of Italy but today, thanks to cluster thinning and the abolition of chemical fertilizers, it has become a symbol of Piedmont all over the world. The fruity notes and structure stemming from the sandy marls are brought up in the glass.

PAIRINGS

perfect with cold cuts , cheeses, rich starters and pasta dishes but also ideal with barbecues.

DETAILS

  • Ageing: not very rich in tannins, particularly suitable to ageing in wood. Ageing begins in used barriques for 7 months so as to limit the toasted and vanilla notes and emphasize the fruity aromas. It is then moved to stainless steel tanks for other 6-8 months and then bottled with the utmost care.
  • Grape harvest: between 20th September and 10th October. This variety is very sensitive to the weather conditions, it  best suits hot and dry vintages as well as calcareous and well exposed soils.

AVAILABLE AT

Fine dining establishments across Ontario.
Available online only as part of a mixed case.

*We are able to facilitate the purchase of exclusive wines for our customers through the LCBO Agency process. These wines are a specially curated selection we’ve put together from some of our current suppliers.  The prices quoted are by the bottle and include all fees, taxes, markups and bottle deposit. By LCBO regulation, these wines must be sold by the case only. Prices and availability are subject to change
