Barbera d'Alba DOC Superiore "Mugiot" 2019 - Piazzo Comm. Armando

Careful producers, such as Piazzo Comm. Armando, are not satisfied with assessing the exposure or composition of the soil when planting a certain vineyard. Over the years, in fact, thanks to careful zoning and the separate vinification of the various plots, it has been possible to identify all the plots most suitable for the cultivation of a single vine. As in the case of this Mugiot vineyard, which has proved to have the best characteristics for the production of a particularly long-lived Barbera d'Alba. Mugiot, in Piedmontese, means "little pile", a nickname given to Armando Piazzo's grandfather who, as a wood merchant, used to make little piles of wood. And the wine made from it bears this name because, as with the small piles, Mugiot represents only a small portion of the total production of Barbera. Intense ruby red in colour, it is tinged with garnet shades over the years. Its bouquet combines fruity, spicy and ethereal notes, with hints of blackberry, jam, green pepper and vanilla with rose and toasted notes in the background. In the mouth it is warm and enveloping, with a pleasant softness and an excellent structure and persistence. Its elegant complexity makes it the right wine to accompany an entire meal.

The valorisation of Nebbiolo and its ageing potential is one of the founding objectives of the Piazzo family's Alba estate. Something that might seem obvious today but which at the time, in the 1960s, turned out to be a very important intuition. These were the times, in fact, when Nebbiolo was preferred to other more sought-after and therefore more profitable varieties. The cultivated farms are located in different areas of the Langhe and Roero, with vineyards ranging from Barbaresco to Barolo, including the most typical varieties of the area. Over the years, under the guidance first of the founder Armando and his wife Gemma, then of his daughter Marina and her husband Franco, and finally of his grandchildren Simone and Marco, the Piazzo Comm. Armando winery has made respect for the territory, the diffusion of Piedmontese culture and the continuous search for improvement its true cornerstones. The result is wines with a strong territorial character that have not struggled to achieve excellent results on all markets around the world.
