A ruby red color with a velvety texture, an intense nose, depth and tannins but also finesse… We are well in the Italian wine codes of the Piedmont region ! This vintage celebrates its terroir and its unique grape variety, the barbera, and restores a great value to the cooperative cellar.
The range of wines offered by Terre Sabaude, is the work of the producers of the municipality of Govone who joined in 1957, to represent the Piedmont terroir, defend common values and make their wines prosper. A successful bet for these winemakers since their wines now enjoy international recognition. An attitude of solidarity legitimately rewarded…
A beautiful representation of the terroir
It is in the north of Italy, around Turin, that is the region of Piedmont and its famous protected appellations Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera d’Alba. The Borbonica cuvée highlights the Barbera, a grape variety already appreciated by expert and still too little known by the general public. Produced with vines that are 300 meters above sea level, the wine Borbonica is matured in French barrels.
But producers in the Govone region also produce wines in the Barolo and Barbaresco appellations, which enhance the Nebiolo grape variety, or white wines and bubbles (with Arneis grapes, typical of the region, or Chardonnay and Sauvignon).
The Borbonica, Barbera d’Alba from Terre Sabaude, is a beautiful expression of this terroir but also a proof that cooperative wines can be remarkable !
A wine that is both racy and sensual, with aromas of cherries, chocolate and praline, and that will go perfectly with red meat or traditional Italian dishes such as Lasagna Bolognese.
The Barbera d’Alba is a wine that can age 5 to 7 years old and that approaches as a barolo for a cost often lower.
In short, a success!
Yours and Italian wine,
