Amalia Barbera D’Alba 2020
This family’s adventure in the world of wine began in 2000 when Luigi Antonio and Maria Angela found the perfect place in Piedmont to spend much needed family time. In Monforte d’Alba, Cascina Amalia, a farmhouse dating to the early 1900’s with 3 ha of vineyards surrounding, was love at first sight and the Boffa’s planted roots.
Red and black cherry, red plum and red currant jam, warm spices reminiscent of fruit cake , cinnamon and vanilla and an earthiness of fresh pickled beets. There is a mintiness that comes from ripeness. Very high acid, moderate tannin that sticks your cheeks coming from time in old wood.
