BRAIDA IL BACIALE MONFERRATO ROSSO 2014

 
$72.00
 

 The ‘Bacialé’ Monferrato Rosso is a harmonious marriage of Barbera, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and enhances the best characteristics of each grape. The proximity to France inspired the use of the French varieties which have a supportive role, with 60% of Barbera as major component. The ageing of the single grapes happens according to each variety in either large Slavonian (Croatia) barrels or small French Barrique barrels. The ‘Bacialé’ is of intense ruby colour with purple nuances. The spicy bouquet indulges with notes of black small berries, walnuts and black pepper. The palate shows heady juicy forest fruits underlined by a well- integrated and ripe tannin structure. The high percentage of Barbera bestows an unmistakably sapidity to the wine. The warm and fresh fruit lingers! An ideal accompaniment to savoury food!
