Barbera del Monferrato D.O.C.

13% sparkling

The wine Barbera del Monferrato is an ancient family tradition of F.lli Pavia. Produced time ago in a small quantity, it is today a nice find for many people as it pairs the features of a full-bodied wine to a nice sparkling taste. 
Produced out of the grapes of our vineyard in Agliano, it is bottled in March. After a short time it takes a pleasant perkiness, what makes this wine ideal for a square meal, without depriving it of the typical features of a great Barbera.

Even sparkling, it is a great Barbera, which will surprise you with its body and its richness.
