The Asti and Monferrato areas of Piedmont, east of the Barolo zone, are Barbera  country. Agostino Pavia and his sons Giuseppe (‘Pino’) and Mauro have been making two styles of Barbera from two different single vineyards since the ‘80s. Their wines are zesty but balanced, with luscious fruit to match the acidity. Moliss is a Piedmontese word, not Italian, meaning the ‘middle son’. A single vineyard wine, it is the closest thing to a traditional Asti but cleaner and more concentrated. Medium red color with purple glints; aroma of raspberries with a hint of herbs with a broad, meaty quality from the aging in large barrels. Pairs well with hearty pastas and grilled meats – also delicious with grilled salmon.
