Grapevine: Barbera.Cantina Del Glicine
“La Sconsolata” Barbera d’Alba Superiore DOC
Our vineyards are all located in Neive
Vine that is very widespread in the Piedmont region where it produces wines with different characteristics depending on the area of production.
In honor of an ancient local tradition grapes are vinified by us by adding, during fermentation, 10-15% of Nebbiolo grapes from Barbaresco to make wine softer and enhance their fragrances. The wine, which is dry and agreeably sharpish, matches with cheeses, pork salted meats, white and red meats, poultry, mixed boiled meats, soups and minestrone soups. La “Sconsolata” ripens in Slavonian oak-wood casks, capacity 14hl.
Color: Intense ruby red tending in the course of time to garnet red.
Taste: dry, agreeably sharpish, fruity if young.
