This wine is aged for 12 months in wood barrels in order to be “Superiore” (superior). Thanks to the fine barrels, the Barbera d’Alba Superiore “Ardote” has a bit of tannins and its acidity is sharped. This wine gets its full-bodied taste only after the aging. The best match for this wine is with first courses and meat main courses.
