Wonderful purple color with pink rim, rich aroma of grapefruit, rose, blueberry and lemon zest unfolding in the palate; a classic Barbera with low acidity for the best tasting experience.

The wine at the table

With its structure and acidity, L’Attesa is fantastic with roast meats and braised beef dishes. Open the bottle 1~2 hours before serving.

La Ricetta

Bocconcini di brasato

It’s basically an Piacenza version of pot roast and uses Barbera/Gutturnio as the primary braising liquid, although you could substitute stock if you prefer. The braising liquid and vegetables reduce to a rich, beef and tomato flavored sauce. The braised beef is often served with mashed potatoes which are delicious topped with the sauce.
