Barbera d’Asti from her vines of around forty years old, planted over the region’s characteristically steep slopes and soft, sandy soils. This spent two months on skins, followed by a year in vat and another in large old casks. As pure an expression of the grape as you’ll find, with brambly fruit, a little tannin and the variety’s hallmark acidity making for a vibrant wine of real charm.

ABOUT THE WINEMAKER

Nadia Verrua’s family has been making wines in the hills of Monferrato in the province of Asti for over a century.

Their ten hectares of land are farmed organically and split equally between vines bearing local grape varieties and hazelnut trees. It’s little secret that Nadia’s mum Teresa makes one of the best torta di nocciole in all of Piemonte.

Things have always been done properly here and it shows. The fruit comes from healthy vines planted on soft, sandy slopes and the resulting wines are charming, rustic and pure.

In the cantina the wines are fermented with wild yeasts and raised in a mixture of big old botti, fibreglass and cement. The idea is not to add too much, not to take away, and the resulting wines are joyful and delicious, a pleasure to drink.
