 The Barbera d’Alba Madame Superiore DOC, 2018, hailing from the prestigious winemaking regions of Lange and Roero in Italy, epitomizes the essence of a traditional vintage. The climatic conditions of September and early October of 2018 lent a perfect balance to the grapes, allowing for extended vineyard ripening and a resulting harmony in the wine. Harvested in October, the grapes underwent 8 days of maceration and 100% malolactic fermentation, culminating in a wine that reflects the terroir of Langhe and Roero with finesse.

This exquisite Barbera boasts a dark ruby-red hue that entices the senses. On the nose, it reveals a delightful medley of fruity aromas complemented by herbal undertones, evoking imagery of raspberry jam and fresh hay. Upon tasting, the wine offers immediate freshness on the palate, coupled with a satisfying length and a silky-smooth texture. Its straight freshness, light tannins, and distinctive minerality contribute to its overall allure and elegance.

Crafted by winemaker Stefano Gagliardo, this wine is a testament to meticulous attention to detail and a commitment to organic winemaking practices. Aged in large 35HL French oak barrels for six months before bottling, it exudes a living and elegant fruit character that pairs exquisitely with a variety of dishes, including light pastas with vegetables, white meats, and short to medium-aged cheeses. With an ABV of 14%, this 100% Barbera varietal wine promises an unforgettable sensory journey for the discerning palate.
