L'Armangia: Nizza, Barbera, Albarossa e Piedmont wines
Perugia, Italy
Thursday, March 13th, 2014
The event dedicated to L'Armangia wines has been the occasion to get a better knowledge about Barbera, Nizza and, in particular, Albarossa, interesting red berried grape created by prof. Giovanni Dalmasso in 1938 by crossing Chatus and Barbera. To give a clear view about these varieties and their territory has been Ignazio Giovine, owner and wine maker of L'Armangia winery of Canelli - in province of Asti - famous wine land, in particular, for Muscat Blanc. Ignazio Giovine has in fact illustrated the characteristics of Barbera and the peculiarities of Nizza, by focusing on the differences with the other territories. The event has also been the chance for knowing the Albarossa grape better, interesting red berried variety, capable of making wines of remarkable personality and character. The evening started with the first of the two white wines, Monferrato Bianco EnnEEnnE 2012 made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes and partially fermented in cask. The same wine making technique was also used for Piemonte Chardonnay Robi & Robi 2011, in which is also found the contribution of a small part of the rare Chardonnay Musqué, giving the wine a very pleasing profile and rich personality. It is then the turn of the first of the three red wines, beginning with Barbera d'Asti Superiore Nizza Titon 2010, a wine that allowed participants to be introduced to the territory of Nizza, among the best expression of Barbera in Piedmont. It then follows Piemonte Albarossa Macchiaferro 2010, wine with a strong character - with a lively crispness and body - an occasion to get to know this particular grape capable of evolving for a long time while keeping its characteristic crispness. Back to the Nizza area with Barbera d'Asti Superiore Nizza Vignali 2007, wine that - after seven years - shows a surprising youth while offering a pleasing roundness balancing the typical crispness of Barbera. The event ended with Moscato d'Asti Canelli 2013, territory from which are being produced among the best expression of the famous aromatic white berried grape, with a lively effervescence and sweetness, as well as typical aromas of grape, peach and sage.
