From the Alban hills in Italy’s Piemonte, Barbera is a lighter wine than Barolo, but offers great quality and versatility and can be drunk sooner. From the excellent family owned organic Rivetto estate where everything is dictated by nature, Zio Nando comes from a vineyard with calcareous soils and the grapes are macerated for 2 days before 10 days’ fermentation and ageing and fining with egg white.

24 months in 225 litre French oak barrels and 12 months in bottle

Intense blacky ruby with bright garnet highlights

Concentrated yet fresh with lots of sappy black fruits and traces of oak spice

Bursting with brambles and cherries with traces of toasted oak and hints of vanilla decent grip but not tannic
