Abbazia Barbera d' Asti D.O.C.G. (x2) ***
The lands of Asti are located between Milan and Genoa in the Italian Northwest. A leisurely drive between the two takes you through lands lined with vineyards, rolling hills, and some of the world’s best wines and cuisine. It is here where they make the Asti wines of Dolcetto, Moscato, Brachetto, and most importantly, Barbera. Known all over the world, the Barbera made here is second to none. An elegant wine that is full and dry, its tannins hold a firm grip, bringing along full ripe red berry flavors. Although Barbera can be aged, it has a tenacious youthful nature that we love and enjoy at the young stages of its bottle life.
