Barbera d’Alba DOC Munbèl

Tasting Notes

Tasting notes

A rich and sumptuous bouquet with a note of red fruit and in the background, vanilla and licorice. A rich and strong taste of great structure. It is surprising for its elegance that lastingly caresses the mouth and recalls prunes and dried grape marmelade. Goes well with plates based on red meats and wild fowl, and is excellent with medium and well seasoned cheeses.
