The 2012 Barbera d’Asti has a intense yet clear and bright ruby red color with light orange shading. A delicate bouquet with delicious hints of current, plum and ripe wild berry. Asti is the name of a province, a town and a wine to be found in Piedmont, north-western Italy. Since 2000, it has been possible to produce Barbera d’Asti Superiore, for which the wine must have an alcoholic strength of at least 12.5% by volume, and be aged for at least 14 months, 6 months of which stored in oak or chestnut barrels. Many Superiore producers refine it in small oak barriques to obtain a rounder taste. Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) Lower Alcohol 13.5%
