“兄弟”, 阿斯蒂芭贝拉

Barbera d' Asti DOCG


The Taste Profile : A third version of Barbera made by Lars. Fresh and inviting, with aromas of red cherries, raspberries, and a hint of violet. Juicy red berries dominate, complemented by nuances of cranberry and a whisper of white pepper. The simplicity of its steel tank aging allows the pure fruit flavors to shine..  Smooth and elegant, this Barbera di Asti offers a fresh and simplistic style, perfect for those who appreciate a more straightforward, yet beautifully expressive wine. Ideal for pairing with light dishes or enjoying on its own as an everyday pleasure.
