History

  • Barbera d'Alba is a key DOC of Piedmont, north-western Italy, famed for its tangy, cherry-like red wines made from Barbera grapes. Barbera (like so many Italian wine grape varieties) has ancient origins, although it has only been traceably documented since the 17th century. Barbera-based wines are well regarded for their rustic yet generous character. For a wine to be legally labelled as Barbera d'Alba, it must be made from at least 85% Barbera grapes.

Regional Information

  • The Piedmont region of northern italy, surrounded by the Alps, is home to Italy's third most planted grape variety. Alba is one of the few areas in which Barbera is planted on the best sites and producing wines capable of challenging Barolo and Barbaresco's crown. Barbera vines thrive in the chalky, limestone-rich clay soils.
