  • Barbera d'Alba is produced from vines with an age of 10-30 years. It is matured for five months in French barrique barrels (no new wood). It is characterised by its cherry aromas and notes of violet, and its full-bodied, fresh, fruity palate, delivering real juiciness, supple substance and a long finish.

    Elio Altare is now one of the finest winegrowers in Piedmont. But things have not always been straightforward. This Burgundy-lover and visionary wanted to modernise the old Barolo wines, but this brought him into conflict with his father, who disinherited him. Undaunted, Elio Altare managed to buy back his father’s domaine and now, with his daughter Silvia, produces pesticide and chemical-free wines vinified with indigenous yeasts, in la Morra, a town in the Barolo region. His wines are strikingly elegant and extraordinarily silky smooth, both literally and figuratively. They are also stunningly fresh. This is a truly great domaine.
