2017 Osvaldo Barberis Dogliani “Valdiba”

Article number: Barberis Dolcetto
Availability: In stock (3)

Osvaldo Barberis is a tiny family estate in the Dogliani, an appellation in the western part of the Langhe in southern Piedmont. By tiny we mean tiny – just 7 hectares planted to dolcetto, the main grape of the Dogliani, and 2 hectares of nebbiolo and barbera. This dolcetto comes from the Valdiba’ sub-zone, which might be familiar to you, as the Valdiba’ from San Fereolo was a shop favorite for a long time until the distribution changed and the price went way up. Made in stainless steel, Barberis’ version is intentionally light and easy-going, with a charming nose of purple flowers, fresh plums and berry fruit. A clear winner for pizza, semi firm cow’s milk cheeses like Toma Ala and Fontina, or light pastas.
