La Barbera, austere grape of Piedmont

The wine that takes measures the Trebuchet, lemma well more known for our compatriots in North Italy, Piedmont was a unit dating back to the period prior to the unification of Italy and the adoption of the metric system in the entire Italian peninsula. This is a wine that takes measurements; Surely it is a wine that manages to stand out in the swarm of wine production that proliferate in our marketplace. Doesn't do it for arrogance, neither by vain glory: he deserves a place by Bishop between our tastings. After a short settling, we tasted the wine at the optimum temperature to allow olfactory were seen at their best. In addition to its nature of fruity and floral with clear notes of spice, toasting-sometimes accompanied by a suave and liberating mentholated veil-the wine presents a structure and persistence typical of barbera. We paired the wine to a steak fassona; the spicing helped moderate the wine to express its character as a whole. This wine was a nice confirmation of the potential of an Italian region for quality and winemaking traditions of our country. A respectable Bishop brings with it the sign of his army; He is the emblem of a priceless heritage.
