Villa Sparina Barbera del Monferrato DOC
Violet scented Barbera that packs a powerful punch.
- Piedmont, Italy
Founded by the Moccagatta family in the 1970's in the hamlet of Monterotondo. Villa Sparina comprises 100 hectares of land, 70 of which are cultivated with local grapes for the production of Gavi and Barbera wine. The unique and eye-catching bottle shape corresponds to the Roman amphorae found in the truffle-rich grounds. Monferrato is a violet and berry-scented Barbera which packs a powerful juicy punch on the palate backed by supple tannins and a refreshing burst of controlled acidity. This a great all-rounder red that deserves to be enjoyed more frequently.
"Barbera del Monferrato Villa Sparina is recognizable by its bright ruby red color and fine perfume, characteristics given by the complete and perfect ripening of the grapes. This intense and fruity Barbera, with juicy notes of raspberry, is appreciated for its fresh and soft taste with a persistent finish." Villa Sparina
Ideal with wild boar ragu or spicy sausages.
