"Rich, smooth cherry flavors fill this ripe Barbera, its red fruit accented by smoky tobacco tones. It's a big wine balanced to age for a few years, or to drink with grilled meats."

"A bright and lively wine, with cherry, roses, and a smoky element on the nose. Delivers a good hit of sweet cherry fruit, a good mouthfeel, and a juicy finish. Very nice, especially at the price"

Our history

REALITY MADE OF LANDS, MEN AND TRADITIONS
The Bersano winery story began at the end of the 19th century in Nizza Monferrato, the heart of the Barbera d’Asti district. Territory and vineyard, soul of the grape, immediately became the winery’s main features when Arturo Bersano, lawyer for his family’s pride, but vine-dresser by choice, took up the family run business. His motto “if you want to drink well, buy yourself a vineyard” inspires our philosophy and work. Over 230 hectares between Langa and Monferrato, in the best “cru” area, making the largest private vine-grower company in Piedmont. A huge museum dedicated to the grape and winemaker’s utensils, excites curiosity into the visitors, among artefacts recording everyday life, presses and ancient farm tools.


VINEYARDS, VARIETIES AND HARVEST
The great passion inspiring the winery’s current proprietors, Massimelli and Soave families, has managed to plant over 230 hectares of vineyards, growing everyday year with newly planted vines. A passion concretely expressed in the love and almost maniacal care dedicated to the vineyards year after year. In a land so strongly linked with production of quality wines while it is true that these are the environmental conditions that makes the wines of Piedmont so unique and expressive, there is more to add, and it is the product of human effort: loving care of the vineyard, correct choice of land and exposure, the nest pruning techniques without forgetting thinning. All these environmental conditions and the professional equipe of agronomist and wine-makers make the local grape one of the true masterpiece of nature.


WINEMAKING AND REFINEMENT
In Nizza Monferrato, the heart of Barbera d”asti district, home of the Bersano winery for almost a hundred years, a team of talented, experience enologists dedicate great care and passion to these carefully selected grapes. Starting with gentle pressing and continuing with tradidional but carefully controlled winemaking techniques- thanks to use of advanced technoilogies for precise control of fermentation temperatures and times, frequency of pumping over, etc – conditio sine qua non for creating great wines. Concluding with the choice of woods to be used for aging and refinement, either the large casks of Slavonian oak that are the company’s biggest asset, or allier tonneaux of different sizes and capacities.

With a cherry bouquet and silky texture, this fresh tasting wine is great to drink on its own and pairs nicely with sharp cheeses, red sauces, chicken or pork.

Really? That's weird. I got an e-mail from Justin saying that there had been a breakage problem in the warehouse so I would only be getting two bottles instead of the four that I had ordered. Still free shipping, so I'm fine with it.

You should just shoot them an e-mail, Frank. They love you!

I hate to complain to them. But I know that the description does not say Barolo butthe bottle that was pictured had Barolo on the label. I jumped on this bottle or that reason. You do not get Barolo for under $40 and we paid $10.

How many bottles did you get? A lot? I would definitely say something to them. Not in an angry way, you know. "Just want to mention...."

I bought 5 bottles but I came close to getting as full case. I feel bad because I recommended it here.

I've been in the city for a few days, will check today when I get home if mine arrived. I jumped on it since it was Barolo, I didn't even read the description.
If you try one and it's wonderful, please let me know, b/c otw I am going to return it.

Thanks for the heads up, Frank.

No, someone was home to get it. I would much prefer to have the Barolo than to just return what I got if it's possible, I bought 6 bottles.

If it drinks good then I would keep it even for just a dinner wine.
I admit I thought it was to good to be true. To bad he does not give us a discount code for the next order to make up for it or just charge us half price for this order.

NG on getting the Barolo for that price. He just got the wrong picture and does not have that wine.

Darn. I'm surprised they didn't give you a discount code, at least a small one. Maybe you could suggest that?

I managed to miss the Fedex Ground delivery man twice, so no wine for me till Monday.

We went out to dinner and I came home and opened the box--which has been sitting in the kitchen since the afternoon. The wine is still so cold! I have to let it warm up before we can drink it.

I'm having some of the wine. It's good, but it's not blowing me away. Tastes like a good $12-$16 wine. It's still on the chilly side, though, and it tastes kind of tight. It needs to warm up and open out, if that make sense. It's so cold it has barely any scent.

Personally I would keep it for $10 a bottle--it still seems like a good price.

We did not drink at my house tonight but I plan to open one before the weekend is up. I will report back tomorrow night.

I had the wine at room Temp and both myself and my BIL enjoyed it. In fact it was better than the wines we had at the restaurant tonight. It is good to drink now but since it is only a 2006 it can only get better with age, IMO it is Well worth much more than what we paid.
