Winemaker's Notes

Manzone's Barbera d'Alba comes from the Castelletto Cru on Monforte d'Alba. After harvest in the second week of September, the Barbera goes through a temperature controlled ten day fermentation. The resulting wine is then aged for two months in barrique and then 10 months in steel tanks before being bottled.

Critical Acclaim

"Beautiful and intense, delivering citrus and blackberry aromas. Full and powerful, with a raisiny, rich palate. So much going on here. Juicy and opulent. What young Barbera should be. Drink now."
