Barbera d'Alba 'Vignota' 2011
From a selection of Monforte’s finest vineyards: Ginestra, Mosconi,
Pajana, Bussia and Ornati. Some of these are old vineyards, with most replanting
taking place in the early 1990’s. Barbera is given prime vineyard location,
mostly on windswept crests at about 280 metres on sand/silt soils. Aged 10
months in second use barriques, the wine is a deep purple with an intense nose
of violets and cherries; a seductively fruity palate with marked acidity, a hint
of new wood and a long finish.
