Franco Roero | Sichei Barbera D’Asti Superiore DOCG SICHEI Barbera D’Asti Superiore DOCG is
18 months in small new French oak barrels, 5 months in the bottle before release. A dark garnet red, with purplish flashes. Nose of intensity and cleanness. The sweet notes of vanilla and coconut, deriving from the wood, contribute to an orderly development of juicy sensations of ripe blackberry, branded cherries and cocoa. It goes on with sweet tobacco, incense and spices such as black pepper and nutmeg, and ends with the balsamic hints of camphor and pine resin. The taste is a perfect combination of power and balance. The freshness softens the alcohol for a finish full of meaning where the tactile sensations of the tannins and the a well marked sapidity emerge without stiffening the sip. Very good to drink now with an important evolution potential: more than 15 years. Great for red meats, medium/long matured cheeses, pasta with wild boar sauce, stuffed chicken, roast guinea fowl, game.
