No need to decant before serving.
Red cherry juice, blueberries and uplifting hints of vanilla and violets burst out of the glass, while the first sip reveals kirsch, plum jam and tobacco flavours and a velvety smooth texture. This easy-going Barbera is aged in stainless steel vats for 8 months after vinification, enhancing the juicy fruit character and retaining a crisp acidity. The youthful, fruit-forward personality and medium body make this a very versatile wine which is ideal to serve with hearty dishes like spaghetti and meatballs or other tomato-based pasta sauces.
The winemaker Marco Oberto and his agronomist sister Paola have chosen to name this particular example Fisetta or “firework” in reference to a local man named Berton who attempted to set up a fireworks factory close to where the winery now stands. The project came to an end when his fireworks accidentally caught fire and destroyed the building.
All the grapes for the Fisetta come from Ciabot Berton’s vineyards in the highly-respected La Morra cru. Although the village is better known for its elegant, floral Barolos, the clay and chalk soils are also ideal for producing delicious Barberas. The Oberto family who own Ciabot Berton draw on generations of experience of viticulture in the region to craft stunning single vineyard Barolos and Barberas as well as more wallet-friendly reds which represent incredible value for money.
