This magnificent ruby red colored wine with garnet red tinges that matures in cellar before bottling, has a woman’s name, Elena. It offers sensations of ripe fruit with a hint of vanilla on it’s long and lingering aroma. It is a dry, savoury, full bodied and harmonious wine with bright acidity. It pairs well with roast meat, stews and wild game braised with red wine.
For over 100 years, the Bera family has demonstrated their rich knowledge of the Langhe area, initially growing and supplying grapes to prominent wineries of the Piemonte region and eventually crafting renowned artisanal wines of their own. Located in Neviglie, a small village in close proximity to the prime soil of Barbaresco, this gem of a winery may be difficult to find but well worth the search. With a range of offerings that includes a lively Asti Spumante, a vibrant Brachetto, and a positively decadent Moscato d”Asti, the Bera family is dedicated to producing the highest expression of Piedmontese wines. With deep roots in Piemonte”s winemaking history, the Bera family began vinification and bottling of their own label in 1979, shortly after current owner and head winemaker Valter Bera graduated from the Enological School of Alba.
