Borgogno 2015 Barbera d'Alba Superiore 750ml
The 2015 Barbera d’Alba Superiore sees fruit sourced from the lower parts of the Cannubi and Liste vineyards. These sites are so celebrated for the outstanding quality of their Nebbiolo, they are rarely (if ever) planted to Barbera. This is a rare wine in this regard. Of course, the Barbera vines are planted in the less fortunate spots. This is a tight and streamlined expression with a bright load of dark fruit intensity on the bouquet. The finish shows a clean tannic structure and fresh acidity. It is aged in cement and botte grande.
