Barbera d'Alba 'Piana' Ceretto 2020

The Barbera d'Alba "Piana" of the well-known Ceretto winery is a red wine that encapsulates the territoriality of one of the most famous places for wine production: the Langhe. This label is made from carefully selected pure grapes of the same name and is aged for a few months in steel tanks. The colour is an intense ruby red with brilliant violet hues, and the nose reveals sensations of ripe red fruit and fresh flowers such as violets and roses. On the palate it is full, rich, fruity and with an excellent persistent finish. Organic Wine

Glass
Medium open goblet
Medium open goblet

Perfect for young and medium bodied red wines which don't require excessive oxygenation to open. The opening, slightly tighter than the body of the glass, favors the concentration of aromas towards the nose, enhancing the perception of aromas and limiting the dispersion
