Nizza Monferrato, Asti, Piemonte, Italy
Nestled in the rolling hills of Piemonte, Nizza Monferrato is part of Italy's Nizza DOCG classification and produces some of the region's best Barbera.
Andrea Ivaldi, owner and fourth generation winemaker at Ivaldi Dario, produces delicious native varietals including Barbera, Dolcetto, Freisa and Favorita. We travelled to Nizza specifically to taste Andrea's wine.
The vines benefit from the of the surrounding Alps; generous diurnal range, drainage and sun exposure.
Andrea's Nizza DOCG is a pleasant and welcome change from the expensive Nebbiolo-based wines we typically see out of Piemonte.
Our Ivaldi Dario favourites: Nizza DOCG, Barbera Monferatto Frizzante, Dolcetto d'Asti, and Moscato d'Asti.
