La Miraja 2017 Le Masche Barbera D'Asti
Wine: 2017 Le Masche Barbera D'Asti
Producer: La Miraja
Region: Piedmont, Italy
Winemaker Notes: Barbera ranks among Piedmont’s most prolific and lovable grape varieties. La Miraja’s bottling is a textbook example of Barbera from Asti, where the grape often produces its most complex expressions. Its fantasy name, “Le Masche,” recalls local spirits believed to be protectors of the vineyard. The hand-harvested fruit is destemmed and then crushed by basket press into stainless-steel tanks, where it remains in contact with the skins for 10 days while native fermentation occurs. Following spontaneous malolactic fermentation, the wine ages for a minimum of 12 months in neutral oak prior to bottling and release.
Tasting Notes: Intense and fragrant. Dominated by red cherry, black plum, and blackberry against a backdrop of licorice and mature rose with a delicate balsamic undertone. This medium-bodied wine marries freshness and elegance.
Pairing: Barbera ranks among the very most versatile Italian red grape varieties. Lush fruit, bright acidity, and low tannin make for an easy pairing with a wide variety of dishes and cuisine. This bottling complements everything from pizza and pasta to roast chicken and Korean BBQ
