Smooth hills cross the Monferrato Marquisate, pushing the visitor to search the traces of Aleramo’s passage for a never-ending history, 1050 years long old.
Intense and international like James Bond, Nizza Docg is on the top of Barbera Pyramid
. . . Centuries of history take shape in the streets and plazas of Asti, in the towers and buildings of the ancient city that lies on the bank of the Tanaro River.
Long life and full body wine, Barbera d’Asti Superiore can compete with the most important Italian red wine.
“Se a Castagnole Monferrato qualcuno vi offre Ruchè è perché ha piacere di voi…”
Barbera is so “pop wine” that she’s not afraid of Tomatoes… but she loves robust stews and steaks too.
“The ancient city of Asti, noble and rich, full of people and nice buildings, has a good and productive territory for wheat as well as wine. . . “
One of the most endearing – but also confounding – things about European red wine is the concept (some might call it puzzle) of what is commonly known as the “quality pyramid.”
Italian wine classification is like a pyramid. Look at the top: you will see the best wine. You will see Barbera d’Asti.
When you combine the history of Monferrato with the passion and soul and knowhow of the people involved in making the region’s wines, you get something truly unique: Barbera d’Asti.
