Barbaresco DOCG "Monciraldo"
Barbaresco is considered one of Piedmont’s greatest wines, on par with Barolo. It is a wine that benefits from a period of aging in oak barrels: the wood favors both strength and smoothness, complexity and balance, guaranteeing a harmonic evolution over the years. This wine’s particular vinification style makes it drinkable at a relatively young age, yet it has the potential to evolve for years to come. The result is a rich, full, and smooth wine with great structure.
