Azienda Agricola Negretti Vini Barbera d’Alba Superiore 2009

Beloved for flavorful red wines, Alba is an epicurean’s dream. The historic walled town at its heart is where growers from throughout the Piedmont region would once go to sell their produce to winemakers and négociants following the harvest, but today it is better recognized as one of Italy’s premiere culinary destinations. Sandwiched between Barolo and Barbaresco, the best vineyards, located atop sunny, south-facing hills, are planted with Nebbiolo. A popular entry-level alternative to its pricier neighbors, Nebbiolo d’Alba is softer and less tannic, ready to drink within just a couple years of bottling.

Dolcetto, one of Piedmont‚Äôs more easygoing varieties, is commonly grown here, known as Dolecetto d’Alba, and can often be found casually served in carafes on the tables of Alba‚Äôs oseterias and trattorias. These light and smooth wines are meant to be drunk young and with gusto while the region‚Äôs more serious wines age. Barbera is planted here as well, and takes on a more powerful, structured personality than that of its counterparts in Asti.
