A fine example of the famous grape Barbera from its homeland of Piedmont where it vies for recognition with the Dolchetto and Nebbiolo.
The grape is versatile enough to be grown throughout Italy, second only to Sangiovese as the most recognised red, native varietal. Barbera is often overlooked in Piedmont by its more illustrious cousin, especially Nebbiolo, but it produces high yields of deep coloured, low tannin grapes – perfect for producing good quality wines in a more approachable style than Barolo.
Bennati’s Piemonte Barbera is a fine example of great value winemaking. ‘Cornale’ represents the entry ‘Casa’ wines, soft, fruity and lower in alcohol than other richer fuller styles.
Casa Vinicola Bennati is an old established house, founded in 1920 by Annibale Bennati, in Veneto. They source fruit from other selected vineyards in Italy, which they ship and bottle in Veneto allow greater access to a range of Italian wines, all from one source.
