An absolutely stunning value, this 100% Barbera from Podere Ruggeri Corsini, a noted Barolo producer from the prestigious village of Montforte d’Alba, over delivers in every way when compared to other Barbera d’Alba in its price range. Sourced from the Armujan Vineyard, a former apricot orchard…..the Superiore DOC status is notable in itself! The wine is deeply colored with exquisite floral and wild berry aromas that repeat on the lush and mouth filling palate. The acidity and soft brush tannins are inviting, well integrated and balanced.
The Barbera is aged for 18 months in used Slavonian oak and which is traditional. Check out more info at the winery’s website > http://ruggericorsini.it/ No rating.
The Barbera will pair beautifully with pasta and tomato based sauces and ragu, meatballs, lasagna, and pizza and assorted cured meats, salumi and parmigiano-reggiano.
