Description

Colbertina Barbera takes its name from Giulia Colbert, an early promoter of the wines of the Langhe. Here, in the Piedmont hills, this grape gives its best expression, filled with scents of wild bergamot, red cherries, dark plums, spice, licorice and cocoa. The palate is fresh and lively, with juicy acidity and gentle tannins. The perfect wine for charcuterie.
