Umberto Fracassi Barbera d'Alba Ciabot Contessa 2014

The winery was originally established in the 1800s, acquired by the Fracassi family after the second world war and is still under their management today. Their approach is one of tradition, favouring still the large botti for their Barolos rather than small barrique.

The Barbera d'Alba is raised for between 1-3 years in a combination of large and small old oak barrels, and released after a year or so in bottle.

This is a traditional style Barbera - soft, spicy and full of fresh berry fruit. Barbera's trademark acidity cuts through providing an energy on the supple palette and a finish of prune and moist earth.

Pair with pasta, pork, game such as deer, venison, roast chicken.
