TASTING NOTES
Unlike the particularly early previous year, the 2019 vintage will be remembered for having developed in a much more usual way. The agricultural campaign began slowly due to the protraction of the winter season, but the vegetative recovery was fairly regular: the abundant rains in April compensated for the scarce winter rainfall. The unstable weather with average temperatures not high continued throughout the month of May confirming a delay of about two weeks compared to the vegetative trend of recent years, but in line with a more traditional trend. The high temperatures in June, combined with the availability of water in the soil, created the conditions for rapid vegetative development. At the end of July there was the second heat wave of the summer, which ended with storms, even intense ones, but not harmful to the vine; the remainder of the summer season was spent in a mild climate with sporadic and regular rainfall. The month of September began with the only hailstorm recorded in the Langa: on the 5th, in fact, a very violent storm struck. The summer with hot peaks but with average averages for this viticultural area, allowed the Barbera to reach harvest with optimal phenolic levels, slightly lower alcohol potentials than last year and an important acidity situation. Intense ruby ​​red color with violet reflections, ample and complex nose with floral notes reminiscent of rose and pleasant hints of chocolate and vanilla; in the mouth it is full, harmonious with a persistent and pleasant aftertaste.
ORIGIN OF THE NAME
The name originates from the imaginative interpretation of the surname of the Marchesa Giulia Colbért who, in the 19th century, was a great connoisseur and advocate of Langhe wines.
