WINEMAKER NOTES: Winemaker Mario Roagna exclusively plants autochthonous grape varieties and farms his vineyard biodynamically, creating wines with a transparent sense of place. Fermented and aged in stainless steel tank, this stunning Barbera D’Alba is bright and fresh, with impressive depth and concentration, offering you an excellent opportunity to drink like a local Italian.

TASTING NOTES: Very fresh nose opening with potpourri, roses, cinnamon, bright red cherries, woodland strawberries, and wet stones. The palate's juicy fruit flavors are harmoniously balanced by the mouthwatering acidity, supple tannins, and sweet spices.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: Red wine braised meats, roasted red meats, chicken liver dishes, cold cuts and cheeses.

ABOUT THE WINERY: Cascina Val Del Prete is a leading grower in Roero, recognized for a commitment to natural farming and for traditional work in the cellar, utilizing techniques such as long maceration. This type of farming and cellar work requires incredible commitment, but the resulting wines achieve another level of detail and age-worthiness that is quite simply lost or minimized with more modern techniques that tend to rush processes along. 20 to 30 years ago the family was chastised by their neighbors for their painstaking approach - today, some of the most respected names in Piedmont and of the "terroir driven," wine scene speak highly of their work.
