2018 Barbera d’Alba DOC Valbianchèra, Giovanni Almondo

An 80 year old parcel crafts one of the best Barberas we know. Notes of blood orange and loads of blue fruit, and such a finely judged structure. This is brilliant, and not to be missed.

2018 Barbera d’Alba DOC Valbianchèra, Giovanni Almondo
Giovanni Almondo

This Roero estate is quickly making headlines as a source of not only great value Nebbiolo, just across the Tanaro river from Barbaresco, but also stunning Arneis, one of the great local white grapes of Piedmont. Run by brothers Stefano and Federico with their father, Domenico, they've 600 years of family history here, though they only started to make wine since removing fruit trees to make way for vines in 1980. It's an estate to watch closely.
