Sandrone Barbera D'Alba 2019

Product description

Barbera is a delicate and demanding grape varietal. A meticulous search throughout the area for the very best soils, agronomical decisions and particular attention to vinification enable Sandrone to reveal the very best qualities of this wine. Barbera d’Alba is made to be a medium-weight wine that will drink well for a decade. It shows delicious and plump berry and black fruits. As Barbera possesses almost no natural tannins, the use of tonneaux gives the wine some much-needed structure. It is a perfect match with rich winter dishes as the bright acidity keeps it from being too heavy. 

The cool 2019 growing cycle resulted in a Barbera of good acidity, rich black fruit and mineral elements.  The wine shows the beautiful pulpy purple color so typical of Barbera. On the nose black and red fruits are framed by hints of new wood (but very muted at 25% new).  2019 does not have the volume and lift of a year like 2015, 2011 or 2007, but instead displays the classic side of Barbera to great advantage. It is very lively on the palate and jumps on the tongue with brightness.

The 2019 Barbera should be an excellent match with rich foods like roast pork or a lasagne with béchamel. It is a precise, focused Barbera of great purity.
