  4. Suculé Barbera d'Alba DOC

This Barbera d'Alba is sourced from estate owned vineyards located in Barolo and Monforte d'Alba. The special bottle is reminicent of the bottles of the past and is used to enhance the quality and organoleptic characteristics of the wine. 

Cascina Lo Zoccolaio is dedicated to tradition. The grapes are treated with love and respect at every single phase of production from the vineyards to the cellar. Lo Zoccolaio goes by the following guidelines: no use of herbicides, the use of legumes as fertilizers, and always having respect for the rhythms of nature. The harvest is carried out rigorously by hand selecting only the best grapes.

Wine Production

After the harvest, destalking, and soft pressing, each varietal is fermented separately. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is blended and aged in french barriques for 18 months, then bottled. Everything is done with respect for tradition, and with the most modern methodologies and tools.

Tasting Notes

Intense and bright ruby red color, with intense rose perfumes, ripe red fruits, vanilla notes. Fresh and soft on the palate, well balanced with good refinement and persistence.

Food Pairing

Pair with fresh pasta and meat sauce, meat raviolis, sausages, roast beefs and chop-steaks, pork.
