Giada – new favorite barbera

Andrea Oberto Barbera Giada

Andrea Oberto, my newest friend in Barolo, makes a wonderful Barbera Giada. Some may like to call it a Barbera Superiore, which means that it’s made from the barber grapes but vinified differently, most likely either in oak or longer in oak (compared to the classic barbera). Those who understand Norwegian can read SMAK’s tasting notes onAndrea Oberto’s Giada here.
