Barbera

Nizza, Piedmont, Italy

Founded in 1997, Dacapo has been crafting elegant wines that express the unique terroirs found in the hills of Langhe and Monferrato, as well as the full potential of their native grape varieties. The fruit for 'Vigne Cacapo' comes from Nizza, which was granted DOCG status (the highest in Italian winemaking designations) in 2014, and is 100% Barbera, as required according to the regulations surrounding the production of Nizza DOCG wines. This designation also calls for higher quality growing sites and longer aging requirements, making these wines more concentrated, aromatic and complex than Barbera grown under lower designations. In the glass, this wine is dark in color and opens with luscious blackberry, blueberry compote and spice, followed by plum, tobacco and a touch of walnut skin on the finish. This wine would pair beautifully with black truffle pasta or braised lamb shoulder.
