La Gironda La Lippa Barbera D’asti DOCG

A crowd pleasing and easy drinking Italian Red that showcases bright, intense flavours of honey and apricot. Lightly sparkling, on the palate it’s characterised by a pleasant sweetness, balanced by the right touch of acidity. This wine will please. Perfect with bread and salami, it pairs with all rice and pasta dishes. Ideal with pizza or a barbecue with friends. For something surprising, try with fish, especially in soups!

Description

A small, but growing, family run winery with 9 hectares on vineyards in Nizza Monferrato, the home of Barbera. Fuelled by pride and respect for the traditions of the region only the best grapes are used to make their amazing wines. A firm belief in sustainable viticulture across all the vineyards sees the use of chemical herbicides banned on the estate, and all vines pruned and harvested by hand.

La Lippa is a young, uncomplicated Barbera, perfect for serving cool in summer. Aged in steel to maintain its young and lively taste, it’s no mere coincidence that La Lippa is named after a classic Italian childhood game. Ruby red with purple highlights, it has an intense scent of red fruit and a dry, tangy flavour, for carefree drinking.
