BERA BARBERA D'ALBA
Fate or history decreed that the Bera property would finish a tantalizing 400 metres just outside the Barbaresco zone. Typically unperturbed, Walter Bera has gradually developed a collection of the Piemontese classics, with each beautifully made, rich and strongly expressive – and great value.
A Bera red usually shows deep, rich fruit, but with great complexity and always freshness, life and zip. Here they maximized the deep plummy juiciness and concentration, and retain the savoury edge to go so well with many foods, simple or rich. A great allround red, which needs just a little breathing.
