Hilberg 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.
Lorenzo Begali Tigiolo 1999
Ruby red, with violet highlights. Of notable finesse and elegance on the nose, it opens with fruity aromas of raspberries, woodland strawberries, blackberries and cherries, followed by more complex aromas of tobacco, leather, licorice and vanilla. In the mouth, the wine is smooth, with sweet tannins. The finish is long, persistent and very pleasant. The grapes, which are harvested in September, are allowed to dry and continue ripening for two months. After the vinification process in steel tanks, 50% of the wine is allowed to age for a year in French oak barrels, and the rest in larger barrels. After bottling, the wine is aged for an additional 5 months prior to release. Only 3,000 bottles produced.
