De Forville Barbera d’Asti, “Ca’ del Buc” 2019
This Barbera is from the “Ca del Buc” family “cru” in Castagnole Lanze. The vines are relatively young (20 years old) but the wine is already quite concentrated and full of character. A touch more racy with notes of game, this Barbera speaks of its origins in the Asti district as opposed to the more somber and elegant wines from the Alba zone. As with the Barbera d’Alba, this Barbera d’Asti is fermented in stainless steel for 10 days to two weeks and is racked into oak barrels and “botti” for 12 months before bottling. We import approximately 4,200 bottles per annum for sale in the USA.
