Producer: Azienda Agricola Bera
Region: Langhe, Piedmont, Italy

Fate or history decreed that the Bera property would finish a tantalizing 400 metres just outside the Barbaresco zone. Typically unperturbed, Walter Bera has gradually developed a collection of the Piemontese classics, with each beautifully made, rich and strongly expressive – and great value. His Moscato is regarded as one of the most consistent in Asti
Tasting note: This is deep, with dark red hues over Nebbiolo’s brick-red. It’s juicy for Nebbiolo, and with characteristic deep raspberry, prune and fennel characters. A great example that needs just a vigorous decant, and breathing, for the gorgeous fruitiness to open up and knock those Nebb tannins back a bit.
Alcohol (%): 14.5%
