Barbera is a piemontese grape variety. The name “Ansem” comes from the piemontese dialect and means “insieme” (together). This name has been chosen in reference to the close relationship and collaboration of Angelo and Stefano in the management of their family business.
The color is an intense ruby red with purple shades. The nose is wide, elegant and charming, with scents that go from cherry to blackberry. In the mouth it is sapid persistent and medium-bodied.
The wine pairs perfectly with the Langhe cuisine and savory dishes. Good with pasta (agnolotti del plin and tajarin), rice and soup, red meat and medium aged cheese. Perfect also as an aperitif with cold cuts.
