Decades ago, Marchesi di Barolo's owners, the Abbona family, made the bold decision of planting this steep vineyard which overlooks the picturesque village of Barolo with Barbera. Why bold? Because the obvious choice would have been to plant it with the prestigious grape, Nebbiolo.

Barbera, another of Piedmont's native grapes, was known as more of an everyday wine with less complexity offering rustic wines to be drunk reasonably quickly - not the elegant, complex Barolos known for their great ageing potential. Barbera in the Pieragal vineyard creates a wine with the best of both worlds : more approachable than Nebbiolo, with more complexity than you may expect in a Barbera.

It's one of our favourite wines for date night in or impressing friends. Pair it with a variety of local Piedmontese dishes such as Vitello Tonnato, starters, soufflés, fresh egg-pasta with ragu, roasted white meats or medium-mature cheeses. 

Something about the wine:

- It matures for 1 year in small, medium-toasted, French oak barrels to give it the  perfect balance between tannins, acidity and alcohol.

- Barbera Peiragal matures 2 years after being harvested and reaches its peak condition between 2 and 5 years of age.

- it is ruby red in colour with tints of garnet. It has a fresh and lively nose with clear aromas of blackcurrant, berries, toasted hazelnut and vanilla. It's elegant, balanced and harmonious, with soft tannins. The spicy and woody notes blend together perfectly.
