Rich, ripe red fruits with warming spice.
Tasting Notes: The Barbera del Monferrato has deep, velvety red fruit flavours with spicy notes. Hand harvested into small boxes then taken to the Tacchino winery, stainless steel tank aging, the result is a wine of depth yet delicacy with wonderful aromatics of red fruits. This is an intensely concentrated Barbera bring beautiful spice to the palate.
For more than three generations the Tacchino family has produced superb fresh and vibrant wines in Castelletto d'Orba in Monferrato, Piedmont. This is perfect wine country as the hills provide a natural amphitheatre which protects the vineyards from the northerly winds. Today brother and sister duo Alessio and Romina run the Tacchino estate, blending a respect for traditio with modern winemaking methods and a rigorous attention to detai to produce a range of wines of outstanding elegance and purity. Tacchino's vines are spread over 25 hectares, about half of which benefit from a south/southeasterly aspect. Great care is taken to restrict yields.
