Viberti La Gemella Barbera d’Alba DOC

Meaning “twin,” La Gemella was created to honor the winemaker’s mother, Maria, who is a twin herself and a lover of Barbera. Expressive floral tones of wild rose, fresh berries and crushed mineral. Full-bodied layers of blueberry, licorice, and earth are perfectly balanced. A vibrancy of acid, silky tannins, and lengthy finish contribute to the outstanding quality. Aged for 1 year in tini and bottle. Will offer ideal drinking over the next 2-3 years.
