100% Barbera from Alba, Piedmont, Italy. Practicing Organic, Sustainable, Vegan.

HISTORY: Winemaking in the Palladino family dates back to the mid 1850s in the commune of Serralunga d'Alba in the heart of Barolo production. Palladino also makes this brilliant Barbera d'Alba all sourced from sustainably farmed vineyards in the Serralunga commune, which is known for producing wines of serious structure.

ABOUT: Pierro Palladino studied winemaking at the Istituto Enologico, working as a winemaker for other wineries before carrying on his family’s tradition. He bought the current Azienda Vinicola Palladino in 1974, and entrusted its management to Maurilio Palladino, his cousin.

VINIFICATION: This Barbera d'Alba is a fruitful, lower-tannin alternative to the burlier Barolo. Grapes are harvested in small baskets, crushed and then fermented in temperature-controlled Stainless Steel tanks before 8 months of aging in old, large-format barrels (botti). The wine is delicious with a little bottle age, showing some fresh fruit character with hints of dried herbs and clove, and a brightness on the palate that is emphasized by persistent acidity.

TASTING NOTES: Ruby Red w/ Orange-Brick reflections. A Med-Full bodied Red wine with relatively soft tannins easy-drinking red with good acidity. Aromas of Black Cherry, Red Berries, Clove & Dried Herbs. The palate is quite bright, with Red & Black Cherry, Pencil Shavings, Clove, and slight Earthy notes. Medium length finish.

FOOD PAIRING: This wine will pair beautifully with a wide range of foods including Pizza, Tomato-Based dishes, Pasta Bolognese, Ragu, Beef, Steak, Game, Grilled or Roast Poultry, and even grilled Spiced Salmon.
