Barbera d’Alba 2001
The Barbera, as one knows, thanks to the use of small French oak barrels, has recently become characterized as smooth and profound. Now, its image is continuing to evolve: perfectly fruity, with intense aromas, superior-bodied, extremely drinkable, all due to perfectly matured, fermented and aged grapes. The Hilberg Barbera is a perfect example. It is a wine that knows how to offer freshness as well as integrity. Dark in color, it presents aromas of sweet licorice and ripe berries. Its balance, full body with an acidic vein, and an explosion of fruit make it a joyous experience on the palate. This is a wine to drink generously, in large mouthfuls; a wine that never tires, and has as an additional asset an unbeatable price. 540 cases produced.
Langhe Rosso Pedrocha 2000
Intense ruby red color. Intense aromas characterized by hints of cherries and sweet oak. On the palate, the wine presents itself as concise, rich and juicy. The tannins are well-developed and bestow the wine with a sense of balance. The grapes are worked separately and cut when the wine has already matured. Fermentation takes place in steel, malolactic in oak, and aging for 18 months in French oak barrels. The name Pedrocha comes from the medieval name for Priocca, the village of its origins, and the wine, of an innovative formula, well reflects this ancient territory of its origins in how it beautifully blends the historic grapes of the region. 230 cases produced.
