2020 Castello di Uviglie ‘Bricco Del Conte’ Barbera del Monferrato: Piedmont, Italy

$16.00

Tasting Notes

An eyeful of a beautiful ruby red with bright and brilliant reflections. Fragrant nose, reminiscent of strawberries and fresh raspberries with subtle hints of menthol to complete the bouquet. The mouth is casual and round, with silky tannins, and a finish of fresh fruit.

Winery Details

Castello di Uviglie is a small estate in Monferrato, Italy owned by Simone Lupano who, in 1992, re-launched the vine cultivation on the property. The Uviglie Castle rises on the hills to the east of Rosignano Monferrato at about 8 km. from Casale Monferrato. The Paucaparte di Celle family built it between 1239 and 1271 and in 1491 it passed to the Earls Pico-Gonzaga who started the agricultural activity. In 1820 the Earls Callori di Vignale inherited the castle and commenced the restructuring and refurbishment under the supervision of architect Arborio Mella.
