The fruit for Rocche Viberti’s Barbera D'Alba is sourced from a south-west facing one-hectare vineyard that sits at 250 meters above sea level. The vines are 20 years old on average. The juice is fermented in temperature-controlled steel tanks. The wine is aged in five and 25 hectolitre French oak barrels for around a year which is followed by six months of ageing in bottle.
In the glass, the wine is ruby red with typical characteristics of Barbera fruit and freshness. While the wine has the ability to age in the short to medium term, it’s made to be enjoyed on release. And would you wait, the wine is delicious.
