Castello del Poggio Barbera d'Asti Masarej 2014
This outstanding expression of the indigenous Barbera grape and of its production zone is a wine that retains an enviable freshness. It surprises us when it first encounters our palate, because it succeeds in reconciling two opposite elements: acidity and structure. It offers an impeccable expression of the terroir of the Asti area, with its concentrated red fruit (especially cherries) but also leather and a faint gaminess. Masaréj, a red of outstanding fi nesse, matures for almost two years in barrel and then in bottle.
