Barbera d'Alba "Naunda", Bric Cenciurio - 2020

Item # 34978 750mL

This Barbera comes from a very old vineyard planted in 1958 resulting in a profound red wine of incredible complexity. The Bric Cenciurio estate is an historical estate in the heart of the village of Barolo. This old vines Barbera bottling is rare to see these days - the older age adds to the structure of this fuller-styled Barbera. Aromas of dark berries, spice all with pristine balance. A red wine with the potential to age for many years to come.

Staff Pick Notes

Barbera d'Alba Naunda is a beautiful wine from Piedmont, full of flavors and a bright acidity. The vineyards are planted at 300 meters from the sea level with warm summer days, cool nights, and a lot of sun exposure, the perfect environment for vine growing.This wine is aged for about 15 months in oak and after that it develops in the bottle for additional months. On the nose you can enjoy plums and herbal notes. The palate is very smooth with notes of cherries and a long finish. It's a mature style of Barbera that pairs well with red sauce pasta or with pork dishes. A wine that will not disappoint you!
