Col Dei Venti Petraia Barbera d'Asti
Ornella Cordara grew up in a winemaking family in Piedmont. In 2005 she launched her own label, Col dei Venti, with her son Ivan and her daughter Sara, who is the winemaker. The grapes are vinified in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperatures with frequent punchdowns to induce a favorable maceration on the skins. This Barbera represents its terroir and varietal character from the intriguing fresh red fruit nose, jammy with notes of rhubarb and hints of wild flower, to the soft gratifying palate. This wine is wonderful with meats and cheese and any northern Italian pasta dish and even pizza.
