This is a new cuvée for Olek. We've been incredibly impressed with his Barbera d'Alba, one of the most serious and complex examples of the variety we've ever come across. For his Asti Barbera, Olek employs a shorter maceration to emphasize the easy-drinking qualities of the variety. Every sort of red fruit you can imagine: sour cherry, Bing cherry, strawberry, raspberry, blackberry and a hint of anise commingle on the nose, followed by a full but fresh palate with driving acidity. Serve chilled and in large quantities!
