2020 Bera Barbera D'AlbaBera
Producer: Azienda Agricola Bera
Region: Langhe, Piedmont, Italy.
Grape: 100% Barbera
Tasting Notes: A Bera red usually shows deep, rich fruit, but with great complexity and always freshness, life and zip. Here they maximized the deep plummy juiciness and concentration, and retain the savoury edge to go so well with many foods, simple or rich. A great allround red, which needs just a little breathing.
Producer Info: Fate or history decreed that the Bera property would finish a tantalizing 400 metres just outside the Barbaresco zone. Typically unperturbed, Walter Bera has gradually developed a collection of the Piemontese classics, with each beautifully made, rich and strongly expressive – and great value. His Moscato is regarded as one of the most consistent in Asti.
