The Nightingale

“老爸” 阿斯蒂芭贝拉干红

Barbera d’Asti DOCG Superiore 


Taste profile: Sensations- the first impression of the wine is its renowned fragrance. Just like the name Nightingale indicates, it has an elegant, complex nose. The gustatory softness is balanced with the verve of acidity and a fraction of tannins, perfectly wrapped in a soft and persuasive black cherry pulp. Finally, hints of dark chocolate that amplify the expressive roundness of the wine with consistency.
