Ferdinando Principiano Barbera D’Alba 2019 Italy

$39.95

Ferdinando Principiano Barbera D’Alba 2019

Brilliant ruby ​​red with an intense nose of red fruit. Crunchy, acidic palate.

Ferdinando Principiano’s family has been farming in the Langhe for generations. At the moment the estate is comprised of 20 hectares, including choice old-vine parcels in the aforementioned Ravera di Monforte and Boscareto, a historical vineyard in Serralunga that abuts the famous Francia vineyard of Giacomo Conterno. The other holdings are of Barbera, Dolcetto, as well as the enigmatic white Piedmontese grape Timorasso. Ferdinando began converting his vineyards to sustainable practices in 2003, and currently the only treatments used in the vines are copper and sulphur, and only when absolutely necessary. In an effort to increase the surrounding biodiversity, Ferdinando has been building a pond across from the Boscareto vineyard, an oasis for migratory birds and other fauna. This dedication to nature extends to the cellar, with minimal intervention and only small additions of sulphur at bottling. The vinification is decidedly old-school, with long submerged-cap macerations and elevage taking place only in older wood barrels of 20 to 40 hectoliters. Across the whole range, the wines are beautiful: fresh yet deep and complex, and exhibiting the same lively energy as the vineyards they come from and the person who cares for them.
