Producer: Collina San Ponzio
This is a different Barbera d’Alba, this is a barbera where we can clearly see the “terroir” element. Terroir is not only relevant for important wines, even in a Barbera d’Alba can and makes a difference.
The cru here is identified by the word “bric”, that in local dialect indicates a hill top, and the name of the hill, “dei pittatori” and the barbera grapes used in the making of this wine come from a single vineyard.
This Barbera d’Alba is partially aged in barrels and whilst still maintain the grape’s characteristics such as acidity and fruit, the cru and the wood ageing give the wine an elegance that it is rarely found in a Barbera d’Alba. A great wine.
