Barbera

A unique grape varietal made to be enjoyed by everyone, for everyday, and any time. This is the quintessential, great-valued, Italian red wine for all occasions. Barbera is naturally high In acidity giving you that lip-smacking feeling and boasts traditional flavors of tart cherry, strawberry, blackberry, violet, pepper, dried herbs and spices. Home to Italy’s northern region of Piedmont, Barbera can tend to sit in the shadows next to its bold friend, Nebbiolo. However, Barbera wines are juicy, flavorful, approachable, and affordable; Making them the perfect go-to red wine for all palates! Try pairing Barbera with roasted veggies or dishes that can match the spice and herb flavor profile. 

Piemonte, Italy

Traveling to the northwest corner of Italy you’ll find the region of Piemonte. Here the climate ranges between moderate to continental and the area is noted for its foothills. These foothills provide different aspects and altitudes allowing for a variety of elegant, aromatic, and earthy wines to be grown. However, the primary grapes of Piemonte are the black varieties of Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto and the white varieties of Cortese and Moscato (Muscat). Within Piemonte are many other designated smaller wine regions famous for their specific varietals including Barbaresco, Barolo, Asti, and Alba. 

Chiara now has eleven hectares of vines under cultivation in the communes of Barolo, Serralunga and Monforte d’Alba. She retains the honor of the first female winemaker in the Langhe, and though she came from a family of Barolisti, she braved incredible obstacles in the 1990s to earn that title. She is, by necessity, of unquestionable confidence, determination, patience and charm.
