Vignalina

Barbera d’Asti Superiore DOCG

Barbera

This Barbera Superiore is sourced from a single vineyard of the best fruit, named in honor of the women of Tenuta Santa Caterina. Owner Guido Carlo Alleva’s mother and grandmother were both named Lina. The name translates as “Vineyard for Lina.”

POINTS OF INTEREST

This Barbera is immediately elegant with finesse and clarity on both the nose and palate. Accentuated by an equal amount of red and purple fruits like cherry, plum, and mulberry, the floral presence exists harmoniously with notes of warm cooking spice and subtle forest floor. The medium bodied wine is lively, with soft tannins and a refreshing but structured palate.

Sorì Di Giul

Freisa d’Asti Superiore DOC

Freisa

A close sibling to the Nebbiolo grape, Freisa was once the most widely planted grape in the Piedmont. Freisa gets its name from its strawberry like aromatics and highlights the juicy red fruits that radiate from the glass. Hints of blood orange, bergamot, and licorice lie underneath these red fruits with tannins that are rounder than the Grignolino. A medium-full bodied wine with good texture and depth, all add up to a compelling finish.

POINTS OF INTEREST

"Sorì di Giul" is a wine dedicated to terroir and to family. "Sorì" refers to a sunny slope, highlighting the perfectly exposed hillside from where this wine is sourced. an "di Giul" means for Giulia, Guido's daughter who is active in the winery and helps oversee the property. As lovers of the great Nebbiolo, we cherish the opportunity to share the elegance and power of the Freisa grape, and Giulia’s favorite wine.
