It's been said that the true value of a winemaker can be found on the dining room table of another. When meeting with producers, it is always illustrative to see what wines they are pouring at home. Time and again, when speaking with different Italian wine producers, Domenico Almondo and his wiens are mentioned. And that is just about the greatest reference any winemaker can receive. The Almondo family has grown grapes in Roero for over 300 years. Though, it was Domenico's father, Giovanni, who first decided to bottle his own wine. Today, Domenico naturally farms the sandy hillside soils of Roero, along with his two sons, Federico and Stefano, producing world-class Arneis, Nebbiolo, Brachetto and a small bit of Barbera.


The ValBianchera Barbera d'Alba is made from 100% Barbera grapes that are over 100 years old! The wine displays a gorgeous nose of black cherries and plum, accented with a hint of sandalwood. The palate is full of red and black fruits touched with spice. The finish is long and delicate, highlighted by a refreshing acidity. Wonderful with a variety of pasta dishes, mushroom risotto or pizza night.
