Giacosa Fratelli Barbera d'Alba

This is the most widely known and largely grown vine in Piedmont. It is almost certain that its origin can be found on the Monferraro hills, but since last century it has extended largely into the zone of Alba. The crop is plentiful and constant and ripens in the first fortnighr of October. The bunches are conical-pyramidal-shaped and quite compact. The grapes are medium-sized and blueish-black. [+]
