Bajet Barbera d' Alba doc
The grape variety Barbera is widespread in the Piedmont region and finds its most elegant expression in the Alba territory, where in 1600 it was imported from Asti. Barbera can now compete with the most appreciated grape varieties. In the Piedmont’s dialect the name Bajet means the young conscript soldier, as a symbol of the vitality typical of youth in a wine meant for early drinking.
From a vineyard of 0.55 hectares at 270 m above sea level, excellent South West exposure. Harvest by hand in small containers.
Alcoholic fermentation for 8 weeks in steel tanks under controlled temperature, after destamming. Only native yeasts.
Dense ruby colour. Wide and complex bouquet with hints of red fruits, fruit jam, cinnamon, vanilla and pepper. Naturally with a good acidity, reduced in the Alba-d.o.c. featuring a softer, full taste.
Ideal pairings: charcuterie, tasty first courses, chicken casserole, blue cheeses.
