Poderi Elia, Barbera d’Alba D.O.C.
(bah-BAY-rah DAHL-bah)


Tasting Notes: From the village of Neive, comes Poderi Elia’s classically styled, old-vine Barbera d’Alba. The freshly pressed cranberries on the nose are alluring, and accentuated by lush, but bright pomegranate and fresh flowers. As always with the wines of Federico Stella, the tannins are very softly integrated, always granular and unimposing.
