Albarossa grape variety was created in 1938 by Giovanni Dalmasso, professor at the University of Agriculture of Turin. It is the result of the crossing of Chatus (Nebbiolo di Dronero) x Barbera vines. This crossing resulted in a wine with a high alcohol content and a powerful polyphenolic component (that never shows signs of astringency), balanced by a sustained acidity. It is a wine of intense ruby red color, with violet shades, and a rich and complex bouquet where the fruity aroma prevails over floral scents, along with a spicy component (tobacco). Thanks to its high alcohol content and richness in glycerine, it has an enveloping, well-structured, soft and harmonious taste.
