Barbera d’Alba DOC “Nuela” by Elio Filippino winery in Piedmont expresses an intense bouquet with hints of ripe fruit. A full, balanced taste with hints of wood on the finish. Ideal serving temperature is 18°C. Best to uncork a few minutes before serving to let the wine develop all its fragrance.

This Italian red wine is perfect for family and friends dinners. It is excellent with local “bagna cauda”(mixed vegetables with a garlic, oil and anchovy dip) and meat dishes, such as “bollito” (boiled meat and vegetables). It is also a good companion for fully ripe cheeses.

Vinification: The grapes are pressed and the stalks removed, generating a limpid must that ferments at a controlled temperature of 26°-28°C for 5-7 days. After racking, the new wine is put in stainless steel vats to preserve its fresh fruit characters. Then, the wine rests a few months in oak barrels, until spring. Finally it is bottled, ready for the table.

    Thomas

    Really good value for money. A little dry, but round in taste. Does not have a strength like others from Piedmont, but is suitable for, among other things, cheese.

    Very balanced medium bodied medium tannin nice finish. One of the best wines I’ve had for the price, in a while.
