Estimated arrival - end of April

Peiragal is an ancient word in dialect that identifies gently sloping hills composed of very compact argillaceous limestone and big stones. This type of soil limits the amount of rainwater that is absorbed, causing the roots to grow deeply in search of moisture which then rises through capillary action from the lower layers. As a result, the vine produces loosely-packed bunches of berries and, therefore, a highly structured wine that is moderately acidic and has a balanced alcohol content with understated, delicate tannins.

Grape: Barbera

Appellation: Barbera d’Alba DOC

Tasting: Its fresh and lively nose has distinct traces of blackcurrant, berries, toasted hazelnut and vanilla. Immediately pleasant, balanced and harmonious, the taste is elegant with soft tannins. The spicy and woody notes blend together perfectly.

Alc: 14.5%
