The Colline Novaresi are the gentle rolling hills north of Novara in Alto Piemonte that have had a noble history of wine making for centuries.
The name Campazzi derives from the namesake southern exposure hill on whose slopes grow the Barbera grapes that are used to make this wine.
Aged for six months in French oak barrels, this 100% Barbera wine has elegance and structure with an intense perfume, but a delicate touch characteristic of the wines of the Alto Piemonte.
Serve at 65°F, and uncork the bottle a half before serving.
