The Barbera d’Asti Superiore Nizza is an intense ruby red wine with hint of red berries, plum, vanilla, and licorice. Full bodied with distinct tannins and a mild acidity and a pleasing long finish

Favà, a Barbera d’Asti Superiore, was first produced in 1996 on the sloping vineyards of the Tenuta Garetto farm. Barbera grapes are grown in limestone soil 300 meters above sea level and are handpicked in late September. Vinification lasts 15 days, followed by a 12-14 month aging process in French barrels. The wine is then bottled in late Spring and continues to age for another year. Favà emerges with an intense, almost impenetrable ruby red hue and offers the palate a hint of red berries, plum, vanilla, and licorice. This well-structured wine can be consumed even after 10 years of aging, without compromising its quality.

Food Match: Favà pairs perfectly with robust dishes such as red meat and game.

 

Tenuta Garetto farm, situated in Agliano municipality, was established at the beginning of the last century when vineyards, damaged by grape phylloxera, needed to be renewed. Old plantings were almost all replaced. Agliano area, during the first decades of the Italian Kingdom, already belonged to the so-called “Barbera d’Asti golden triangle” between Tanaro and Belbo rivers, where Barbera grape was grown almost unmixed; in other areas, on the contrary, it was farmers’ practice to rotate other grapevine species.

After years and generation changing, Barbera wine began to reach “distant” markets (Turin, Milan, Genoa, etc.), where it was highly appreciated.

Barbera wine was changing, from a simple drink for taverns it became “something more”. The development was obviously characterized by the gradual increasing of under vine areas, in order to manage at best end-product quality. With the present generation, in the person of Mr. Alessandro Garetto, vine-oenological production swerved towards the new concept of quality, optimizing all Barbera vine variety potentialities.

Nowadays, Tenuta Garetto farm is present on the global market with its 100.000 bottles and Alessandro Garetto’s goal is TO IMPROVE MORE AND MORE.
