Organoleptic Characteristics, Preservation

With an intense ruby-red colour, the Barbera has a full bouquet which with oxygenation opens out into plum and violet scents with a hint of resins and spices. It has a full, warm and lingering flavour.

We recommend drinking it from the second to the sixth year at a temperature of 17°-18°C.
