Barbera d'Asti DOCG 2008 - I Tre Poggi

August 24, 2012

Today we will taste the Barbera d’Asti DOCG 2008 from the farm I Tre Poggi in Canelli (Asti)

It is a biodinamic wine (which vinification considers the astrologic influences on plants and soil) produced only using Barbera grapes.

Tasting notes:

Of an intense red purple, inclined to garnet with aging, it flows fluidy into the glass showing those typical arches due to the level of alcohol inside (13.5 degrees).

The aroma is full, well fruity with hints of ripe cherries and berries as well as spices such as pepper, tobacco and macaroon, deriving from the barrel aging.

The taste is dry with a good acidity level and well balanced between the tannic and sapid components. It is a full bodied wine and with a good aroma’s persistence. Its floreal and aromatic with a nice bitter and acid ending.

This wine, often known as a table wine, is perfect when combined with rich and tasty pasta dishes with meat, mushrooms or cheese sauce or red meat in general like roasts, boiled or game.

Even good with cold cuts and well aged cheese such as castelmagno, grana padano or testun.

It must be served at the middle temperature of 18/20 degrees after a right decantation.

Have a good taste!
