Villa Giada Nizza Dedicato
Barbera d’Asti Superiore Riserva Nizza DOCG
Powerful cassis and mocha, spice and red berry, ripe, mouth filling tannins, a great wine. 14.5%
A small part of the Dani vineyard was selected for this wine, particularly old vines whose fruit achieves excellent ripeness that could embrace barrique and not be overcome by it. In many ways this is a traditional wine, it is a pure Barbera with a bold and ambitious character, importantly though it does not veer from the DNA of Giada and Asti Barbera. It is a wine that spends 18 months in medium to light toast 300 litre barriques and remains in bottle for at least a year before release.
Andrea has dedicated this wine to his son, it is only made in the best years and usually there are only a few hundred bottles released.
This is a seriously full wine, concentrated but not overly so, a drinkers wine loaded with spice and mocha blackcurrant and forest fruit. 14.5%
