Barbera, more than any other, is a winemaker’s wine. It is humble and deeply connected to the land, representing lifeblood for the people of Langa.
More complex than dolcetto, with a more robust body and more juice. Its robustness and acidity make it a vibrant, direct wine, imbued with the typical character of its terroir.
Barbera is certainly the most typically Piedmontese of all wines. The vine can be found in many of the region’s wine-growing areas, from Alba, to Asti, in the Monferrato region, through to the northernmost parts of the region. So the result is not surprising – a wide range of Barbera wine.
Cascina Fontana produces a full-bodied wine that can benefit and improve with aging. After fermentation, maturation takes place partly in used wooden barrels and in cement tanks. This helps the wine soften and adds a touch of elegance, diluting its natural, pronounced acidity, typical of this grape variety. After bottling, Barbera wine ages in the bottle for at least another 6 months before release for sale.
Barbera made from vineyards located in the Barolo area has the ability to age and evolve for ten years and more, becoming rounder, softer and more complex with time.
Barbera pairs with antipasti dishes, cured meats, pasta dishes, roasted meats and aged cheeses.
