Barbera d’Asti DOCG – Trej amis
For April 2019 I have chosen a Barbera D’asti DOCG.
The Barbera red grape is the third most planted grape in Italy after the Sangiovese and Montepulciano. The Monferrato area of Piemonte, on the North west of Italy is the land of Barbera. In recent years winemakers have transformed what was considered an everyday cheap table wine into a much more appreciated and refined wine.
Trey amis (‘three friends’ in the piemontese dialect) is ruby red with purple reflections, medium to full body with notes of dark cherry, dried strawberry, plum jam, blackberry, vanilla and tobacco. On the palate is dry, warm and smooth, well balanced with soft tannins and moderate minerality. Ready to drink now, it will and keep to 2025. Recommended temperature 18-20°C. Pair it with grilled and roast pork and wild boar, meat tartare, braised lamb dishes and light hard cheeses.
