La Biòca Zabaldá Barbera d'Alba 2018
- Medium bodied
La Biòca is located in the village of Serralunga d’Alba, surrounded by rolling vineyards planted to the traditional varieties of the Langhe. They use only estate fruit sourced from their small 9 hectares of vineyard to produce world-renowned Barolo along with several other celebrated styles of wine from Piemonte.
Zabaldá, named in honour of the previous owner of the vineyard, is a floral, fresh and savoury barbera made from hand harvested grapes that see up to a year in a variety of different barrels sizes. It’s ruby in colour, lifted and spicy on the nose and silky smooth on the palate with a harmonious finish. This is your casual Piemonte red, perfect with pasta, pizza or anything meaty.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

If you’ve never plugged Piedmont into Google images then now’s the time. A northern Italian region that spoons both France and Switzerland, it’s one of the more picturesque wine regions in the world and better yet, the vinos do the dramatic backdrop justice. Piedmont wines benefit from the warmth of the Mediterranean and the chill of the Alps, and the combination of these climates means the valleys will often be shrouded in fog. Behind the fog you’ll find Piedmont’s two superstar wines: Barolo and Barbaresco. Known as the King of Wines in Italy, Barolo in particular is lauded over worldwide but really, there’s more to Piedmont than these two. Aside from juicy, tannic nebbiolo, keep an eye out for barbera, the go-to vino for many Italians.
