Bersano's story begins in late nineteenth century, in Nizza Monferrato, the heart of the Barbera d'Asti, with the philosophy of "if you want to drink well, grab your own vineyard." They currently have more than 230 hectares of vineyards in Piedmont, and developed an extensive range of wines.
The Sanguigna 2010 (DOP Barbera d'Alba, raising red with 100% Barbera, Bersano) is made from grapes planted in limestone-clay soils, and is aged for 8-10 months in Slavonian oak barrels. This wine has a ruby cherry scent, low layer, which wants hover trimmed and some tile. The nose is not very intense, is floral, with more red fruit almost black, and memories of something spicy or crushed leaves in autumn forest soil. When it enters your mouth, we came across a wine d elicioso, light, soft and fruity, with good acidity, with some cocoa in the aftertaste and a very sweet and delicate tannins. A wine that does not look like what I remember from that of Beni di Batasiolo Barbera, much deeper, but we liked, and we put hard put WineSaver not finish the bottle.
Do not know how to jump to the Malbec Barbera, but sipping a glass of the latter, I recalled a dinner with friends, on a terrace of the old area of Bologna, and in which he had a great time. And where only drank Lambrusco and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, certainly nothing Piedmont. And he gave me a smile.
