Vite Colte's Barbera D' Asti La Luna e i Falò is dedicated to the last work (La Luna e i Falo = Young Moon) of the writer Cesare Pavese and symbolises the connection to the earth and to one's own origin. Poetic right? For us it was a really great find. 

Barbera was traditionally a rustic grape, playing second best to the more prestigious Nebbiolo used in Barolo and Barbaresco but when it's made well, Barbera really shines. You'll find a wonderful mis of cherries, wild berries, fresh spices, liquorice and vanilla on the nose and in the mouth this wine is fruity and juicy with fine spices and silky tannins.
