Trediberri Barbera d'Alba, Piedmont, Italy 2021
The trio responsible for the wines of Trediberri have been turning heads in Barolo and abroad, & they continue to do so with their Barbera d'Alba. The grapes come from the Roero area and from their vineyards surrounding the hamlet Torriglione, next to the winery. Their Barbera is not smoothed by any oak aging and henceforth it is characterized by a bright acidity and and pronounced intensity of flavor & tannin, if compared to the other Trediberri wines. This wine shows a full body and highlights a fruity character, rather than elegance and finesse. Its perfect pairing is the traditional Bollito misto (Boiled meat platter).
Pairing: Mushroom risotto, burger
