Description: This juicy fruity, vibrant, food-friendly, full-bodied red is made from the Barbera grape harvested in parcels spread amongst the three communes of Barbaresco, Neive and Alba. Included as the primary source are grapes harvested in the cru “Ga’Grosso” in Barbaresco. The grapes are crushed and are then fermented in stainless steel for almost two weeks after which the wine is racked into oak barrels and “botti” for one year prior to bottling. The average age of the vines is 30 years. The DeForville family emigrated to Piedmont from Belgium in 1848 and established themselves in the village of Barbaresco in 1860. We are a big fan of DeForville for their quality and style.
Food Pairing: Versatile. Red meats, full flavored cheese, game, lamb, pizza, burgers, tomato sauce dishes, etc.
