About the Wine
This cracking red wine from Enrico Serafino is produced in the Asti area of Piemonte. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark meaning you won't find it at multiple retailers. Available in 75cl bottles, distributed in the UK by Enrico Serafino. Barbera d'Asti is a flavourful wine, made from Cortese grapes. This cork closed wine is created with added sulphites. The wine is one of a growing number in our list that can be enjoyed by vegan drinkers. Rich with a touch of spice, try with rich meat dishes, game or wild mushrooms.
Barbera produces good yields and is known for deep color, full body, low tannins and high levels of acid. There is a wide range of wines from medium bodied, fruity wines to more intense examples.
