Araldica Barbera d’Asti Ceppi Storici (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
Araldica is Piemonte's most forward-thinking co-operative, situated in Castel Boglione, in the heart of Barbera d'Asti territory. Founded in 1954 by Livio Manera, father of the current Managing Director and winemaker Claudio Manera, Araldica has developed over the past 60+ years to become a major winemaking force in Piemonte, supplying wines across the globe.
Barbera d'Asti 'Ceppi Storici' is sourced from vines that are over 40 years old which is why this Barbera shows such stunning concentrated fruit, balanced by pepper and spice. Warm, spicy aromas of blueberries and plums, with subtle, smoky notes. The palate is rich and generous with juicy cherry and more plum fruit, and meaty, spicy notes beneath. Soft oak tannins offer an extra dimension to the texture. A refreshing smack of fruity acidity on the finish gives plenty of definition to the ripe fruit. Great with simple dishes such as pizza and pasta, or drink with lamb shank.
