Intense rich dark Barbera from the finest selection of grapes and aged in new French oak. Sublime!
Lovely with beef, lamb and game such as venison and mediterranean dishes.
The small winery of Tenuta La Meridiana specialise in one black grape variety - Barbera. Their estate is located close to the town of Alba in the Monferrato hills. The Bianco family which own this estate are now in their 4th generation. What the Barbera grape needs more than anything is a warm site that will help to ensure it fully ripens and tames its naturally high acidity. The Bianco family know the best sites for Barbera and make some of the finest Barbera wines we have tried. The name of this wine roughly translates as `between the earth and the stars` and the label depicts this translation. This wine is made using the finest selection of Barbera grapes and is aged in new French oak barrels and further in bottle before being released. Rich, concentrated and utterly delicious. A great partner for game and rich meat dishes.
The final wine is aged for around 12 months in new French oak barrels and a further 6 months in bottle before release.
Documents dating back to the 19th century witness that, at that time, the Bianco family were already producing and marketing wines of superior quality, in particular Barbera. After four generations, Gianpiero Bianco, with his wife Grazia, continues to improve the family business with passion and dedication, producing wines that represent a happy combination of terroir, tradition and innovation.The TENUTA LA MERIDIANA wine estate is located south of Asti and not far from Alba, in the hills of Monferrato, the shrine of viticulture of Piedmont. The vineyards of the estate were carefully chosen to be part of the estate thanks to their south-east, south and south-west exposure and the quality of the soil, consisting of marl with clay and tufa layers. They are in a zone particularly favourable for the cultivation of Barbera variety, and almost all grown according to the Guyot method, traditional of Piedmont.
