Place: Casalese Monferrato — Piedmont, Italy
Ermanno Accornero leads the fifth generation at the helm of this iconic Monferrato address. Known for producing generous barbera and scintillating grignolino that can rival the perfume of their Langhe neighbours, the grapes are organically farmed over soils that have varying proportions of clay limestone throughout.
This is plush and generous barbera designed for easy-going drinking. It’s hand-harvested then rests in stainless steel for six months before bottling. A wonderful example of easy-going and expressive Piedmont barbera.
