Description Technical Specs (May be in Italian If There Is Not an English Version Available)

This fantastic Barbera from Monforte (Piemonte) is named after Vittoria, the daughter of Gianfranco Alessandria. The old vines were planted in 1935, and Gianfranco produces only 5,500 bottles a year.
Aged for 18 months in 45% new French oak, and 8 months in the bottle before release, the
Vittoria is an intense ruby-purple color tending to garnet with aging. The wine has a wonderful balance of soft tannins and bright acidity. It has deep fruity flavor with hints of juicy plums and cherries are well interspersed with notes of tobacco, vanilla and other spices. This wine has a perfect harmony with the majority of Italian cuisine: it is wonderful paired with pasta, ravioli and meat dishes .

Reviewer: Joanna Saltti from La CA United States  
One of the most "rounded" Barbera. Lots of minerals, terrific color
