Barbera d'Alba Superiore 'San Defendente' by Enrico Serafino is a complex and multi-faceted Barbera that surprises with its inviting richness of aromas and flavors of red fruit. Thanks to the careful management of each phase, from the harvest to the aging in wood, the characteristics of the territory are perfectly integrated in this wine. The aging process in wood lasts 18 months in medium-sized oak barrels (2500-4000 liters) and a small part in barriques. Barbera rich in currant flavors, surprisingly fresh, velvety, full-bodied, with a fine structure, with a pleasant silky acidity softened by aging in oak.
Enrico Serafino winery was founded in 1878 in Canale d'Alba, in the heart of the Roero. Founded by Enrico Serafino, businessman and landowner, the winery soon became one of the most important of Piedmont and among the first to spread the classic Piedmontese wines throughout Italy and abroad. In addition to the classic wines of the area, first of all Roero Arneis and Barbera, the company produces large Barolo and Barbaresco from grapes coming from the neighboring Langhe, noble and elegant wines, where the Nebbiolo grape variety best expresses its characteristics.
