Ca' Viola winery's Barbera d'Alba "Brichet" is an elegant version of this popular Piedmontese red. The excellent quality of the grapes and very careful vinification with minimal oenological intervention allow the grape variety to express itself at its best, giving a red wine of extraordinary drinkability, fresh, fragrant, balanced and harmonious. It is a Barbera suitable for those who want to know the true face of the vine and the authentic character of the terroir. It is a label that seduces by its ductility at the table, where it finds excellent pairings with pasta with meat or game sauces, baked pasta or roasted white meats.

"Brichet" is a Barbera d'Alba that was born on the estate of one of Piedmont's most talented winemakers and vignerons. Beppe Caviola created his Ca' Viola winery in the early 1990s with the intention of enhancing the classic grape varieties of the area. He produces a range of wines of great elegance, capable of interpreting the terroir at its best. The estate is managed with the utmost respect for the environment, using only copper, sulfur and organic fertilizers without resorting to chemical treatments. The Barbera vines are about 20 years old and are grown in the hilly area of Montelupo Albese at an altitude of about 400 meters above sea level. The medium-textured, limestone-clay soils are particularly suited to red grapes, which express themselves with an intense and elegant personality. Fermentation is spontaneous, using only indigenous yeasts and with a two- to three-week maceration on the skins. Before bottling, the wine matures for 15 months in large oak barrels and in second- and third-passage barriques so as not to weigh down the Barbera with woody notes.

Ca' Viola's red Barbera d'Alba "Brichet" is a fine interpretation of the Piedmontese grape variety. Thanks to perfect ageing, the wine expresses an excellent balance point between maturity capable of blunting its youthful impetus and the fragrance of the fruit. In the glass, it is dark ruby red in colour, with purple highlights. The olfactory picture expresses intense aromas of ripe cherry, red plum, morello cherry, small berries and delicate spicy sensations. The sip is lively with exuberant fruit and a very subtle tannic texture. The finish is very fresh with good flavour persistence.
