2008 BARBERA DALBA, Gisep, Massolino. Piedmont

Bin:  530

Alcohol percentage:  14%

Area:

Alba is the main wine town of Piedmont, home of both the revered white truffle and the great wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. This wine comes from one of the great villages of Barolo, Serralunga

Grape variety:

100% Barbera, aged in French oak, 30% new, for 18 months

Producer:

The Massolino family have been based in Serralunga since 1896. They have just 20 hectares, in and around the village. Franco Massolino is now in charge, making wines in both traditional and modern style – this one certainly in the latter camp

Maturity potential:

2012 – 2017

Old Bridge rating:

The grape’s natural freshness is balanced by sweet oak and sheer intensity

Food match:

High acidity of Barbera makes it a brilliant foil to rich dishes – anything with a creamy sauce or perhaps a confit or a cassoulet
