Made from the Nebbiolo grape from the vineyard "Fratin", this wine is an excellent showcase of the winemaking prowess of the Barbaresco denomination. On the nose, it offers an intriguing bouquet of ripe berries, leather, and sweet spices—a seductive invitation to discover more. On the palate, the tannins are well-balanced, providing a solid yet non-dominant structure. Notes of dried cherry and star anise come forth, enriched by a subtle touch of wood aging that adds complexity without overshadowing the fruit. Ideal for enjoying with red meats or aged cheeses, this Barbaresco is also perfect for special occasions where its elegance and complexity can be fully appreciated.

The Piazzo Comm. Armando winery was founded in the 1960s by Armando Piazzo and Gemma Veglia in San Rocco Seno d'Elvio, a hamlet in the municipality of Alba. To date, the company can count on 70 hectares of vineyards in the municipalities of Mango, Neviglie, Guarene and Novello. The winemaking philosophy respects tradition especially for the production of Barolo and Barbaresco but with particular attention to cleanliness and innovation. In the cellar, the effort is at its maximum to make the most of the raw material, fruit of the sacrifices and work carried out in the vineyard. The wines produced are the soul of the territory, they stand out for their perfumed bouquets on the nose, with great body and structure but balanced and elegant on the palate.
