Barbera D'Alba Ansisa

Barbera D'Alba Ansisa

Ref: A107415

Ansisa is a local dialect word for a small, narrow valley created by a seasonal stream. The Barbera grape is yet another of Italy's native grapes rarely found outside its natural home in the northwest, that is making a splash. This wine is from around the town of Alba (home of the white truffle and Ferrero Rocher) and in style is usually a fuller, richer wine than the more familiar Barbera from Asti. This wine is not oaked and so really shows the true flavour of the grape; juicy and with a crisp finish. 100% Barbera. 13.5%abv.

Terre da Vino is very unusual in that it is a winery owned by 14 co-operatives who gave it the task of creaming off the best grapes from the best vineyards to produce top class wines. It was established in 1980 and in 2000 it moved into a purpose built winery in the village of Barolo in the heart of the Langhe.

The wines they sell are of several different types. First where a grower has sufficient grapes the wine is made and sold as if it is a single estate, a policy begun in 1986. Secondly there are a number of growers who produce top class grapes but in very small quantities. These wines are then blended with those from similarly small growers to produce wines that are then commercialised under one of Terre da Vino's brand names. A number of the brands use titles of the novels of Piemonte writers Cesari Pavese and Beppe Fenoglio.

There is a philosophy within Terre da Vino of innovation. So for instance in the face of the rest of the market place they have created a top quality Asti linked to a particular set of vineyards, they are developing Moscato Passito and have long championed the Barbera grape as one of much greater depth and complexity than its previous reputation as an easy drinking everyday wine allowed it. The awards it wins testify the success of the approach of this winery.

Champagne Gremillet
Extremely elegant wines that have undergone a surprisingly long bottle-ageing process that gives them a roundness not often found at this level.
