The Barbera d’Asti La Luna e i Falo stands out for being the fruit of a careful pre-selection process carried out on a 60-hectare winegrowing area, surrounded by Nizza Monferrato, Calamandrana, Agliano and Rocchetta Tanaro. From these vineyards, with slightly different soils and microclimates, Vite Colte has been able to create a wine with an extraordinary balance between structure and aromas.
The 2017 Vite Colte La Luna e i Falò Barbera d’Asti Superiore DOCG begins with lots of beautiful dark berry fruit, perfumed floral notes and nice touches of licorice and vanilla. It's a lovely aroma and a great start.
It only takes one sip to know that this is juicy, delicious stuff. Full of rich, bright, concentrated fruit this smooth, full-bodied, balanced and delicious wine is a wonderful match with all kinds of Italian dishes. Silky yet firm tannins lead into the dry, very long finish. Excellent!
