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.
