Araldica-Alasia is Piemonte's most forward-thinking co-operative, situated in Castel Boglione, in the heart of Barbera d'Asti territory. Here they work with 230 grower members to source quality grapes from around 690ha of vineyards. Many of their members joined the co-operative in the 1950s and have a long and loyal relationhip with the winery. They produce wines from Piemonte's main DOC / DOCG regions - predominantly Barbera, Gavi and Moscato, but also including Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero Arneis.

Alasia Barbaresco is produced from a cellar selection of Araldica's best barrels. The Nebbiolo grapes are de-stemmed and crushed to four small fermenters for 12 days, with daily pumping-over. This ensures good colour and flavour extraction, but avoids over extraction of the abundant Nebbiolo tannins. After pressing the wine is rested Slavonian barrique, where it is aged for 2 years. Another 6 months maturation in bottle is completed before release. Black fruit aromas, with some savoury, spicy and gently floral characters. Complex and richly flavoured with black cherry, bramble and a hint of violet on the palate. Good structure and fine tannins lead to a long rich finish. Fantastic with roasted and grilled meats.

Tasting Note:
