From the Cantina Sociale Barbera Dei Sei Catselli
Deep dark purply red wine
A plush dark fruit nose with a touch of woodiness. Alluring.
Full-bodied, rich flavoured but balanced very well with silky tannic structure. A really good pairing for barbecue meets or oily roasted veg.
Nizza DOCG is a very young DOCG in Piemonte being only 8 years old. The objective is to celebrate the high-quality terroir, a legacy of expert winemaking, and the expressions of the Barbera grape that prospers in this specific climatic zone.
At €18 at the cellar door, this a fabulous tribute to the poet, politician, and lawyer, Antonio Brofferio, who lived in the tiny commune of Castelnuovo Calcea, and was a champion of local traditions.
