Barbera Camp du Rouss offers a bright, full style with generous tones of cherry and blueberry. This is a genuinely cheerful, refreshing and food-friendly red wine that would pair with simple meat dishes or hearty pasta with grated Parmigiano.
Gavi is a fantastically fresh and luminous white wine from Piedmont in northern Italy that offers tonic, compact aromas of stone fruit, honey and cantaloupe melon. There’s a softness in the mouth that is soon followed by refreshing zest.
This bright Chardonnay from Piedmont is partially aged in wood (70% of the wine sees barrique) and the rest is aged in stainless steel. The result is that the wine shows creaminess and density by a lively citrus note does pop through as well.
L’Avvocata delivers a linear and correct approach with balanced fruit tones opposite fresh acidity. You’ll recognize aromas of wild berry, blueberry and cherry and the close is capped by a slight pinch of fizziness.
Barbera d’Asti L’Avvocata opens with tart aromas of small berry and white cherry with a touch of pungent smoke or burnt toast. Light in color and consistency, the wine closes with a crisp, sharp finish.
A toasty, oaked-up, leathery example full of bitter chocolate and a certain sourness that just doesn’t seem right. Even the plummy fruit carries a sour note. Kind of tough to sink your teeth into.
Moncalvina is a soapy, creamy expression of Moscato d’Asti that delivers sweet pulses of stone fruit, honey, acacia, melon and pressed flowers. Pair it with fruit-based desserts such as peach pudding, apple pie or custard.
The deep-yellow color suggests plenty of charred oak, and sure enough there’s plenty of it, with butterscotch and vanilla aromas wafting over apple and spice. Flavors are oaky, and the finish is oaky-sweet. Too oaky for many tasters.
