Visit to Bera in Neviglie
On a quest to find more good Alta Langa Sparkling wines we recently visited Bera in Neviglie.
We tried all the wines that were available and we’re very happy with what we found.
They have a full line of wines all done very well.
The Bera Brut Alta Langa was one of the best Alta Langa Spumante we have tried so far. It is a good representation of the Alta Langa DOC.
Made with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes grown above 400 meters to meet the requirements of the DOC along with being made “metodo classico” (meaning made like Champagne with a second fermentation in the bottle)
The wine was crisp, yeasty, toasty bread notes and the perfect dryness for our tastes.
The red wines were all of good quality consisting of Dolcetto, La Lena Barbera d’Alba, Langhe Nebbiolo, Sassito Langhe Rosso and
Barbaresco. Our favorite red was the Sassito Langhe Rosso, made from a blend of 70% Barbera, 20% Nebbiolo and 10% Merlot with 4 years aging, two of them being in wood. Tasty!
Lastly, we finished the tasting with a Moscato Passito “Nuovo Messagio”. We don’t drink a lot of Passito but this one really hit the spot.
Rich and spicy, not at all syrupy or cloying. We were tempted to drink the whole bottle!
