Tasting Notes

Lifted aromas of red berry fruit, black cherries, savoury spice and violets. The palate combines dried cherry and plum fruit with warm smoky notes and a structured but supple finish.

Producer details

Araldica is Piemonte's most forward-thinking co-operative, situated in Castel Boglione, in the heart of Barbera d'Asti territory. Here they work with 230 grower members to source quality grapes from around 690ha of vineyards. Many of their members joined the co-operative in the 1950s and have a long and loyal relationhip with the winery. They produce wines from Piemonte's main DOC / DOCG regions - predominantly Barbera, Gavi and Moscato, but also including Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero Arneis.Founded in 1954 by Livio Manera, father of the current Managing Director and winemaker Claudio Manera, Araldica has developed over the past 60+ years to become a major winemaking force in Piemonte, supplying wines across the globe. Claudio's wife Lella heads up quality control at Araldica, where she is responsible for the blending and approval of all wines.Their son Carlo, also a qualified winemaker, is now part of the Araldica winemaking team. Livio pioneered developments in winemaking techniques - especially with regard to the production of Barbera - and Araldica have since continued to be instrumental in the distribution of Barbera and Gavi within the UK market and internationally. As Claudio states their aim is "...to provide a range that is both understandable and accessible. Quite simply, wine for drinking and enjoying."

In the vineyard

Made from Nebbiolo grapes from around the town of Barbaresco - covering all three communes of Treiso, Neive and Barbaresco. Soils are a mixture of clay and chalk, and vines are trained on low guyot trellis, with a plant density of 4,000 vines/ha. Manual harvest takes place in early October, yield 6 to 7 T/ha.

In the winery

Nebbiolo grapes are hand-harvested, de-stemmed and then crushed into small fermenters, for around 12 days, with daily pumping-over. This ensures good colour and flavour extraction, but avoids over extraction of the abundant Nebbiolo tannins. The wine is drained off at dryness and the skins transferred to a small press. After pressing the wine is settled for two days, and then racked to Slavonian oak botte and barrique, where it is aged for 2 years. Another 6 months maturation in bottle is completed before release.

Food Recommendations

Excellent with fillet of beef, spring lamb or game casserole.
