A Barilea 2019 - Luchin
A Barilea by Cantine Luchin is a red wine born from the fusion between the territory of Nizza Monferrato - the Piedmontese homeland of Barbera - and that of Lavagna , in the Ligurian Riviera di Levante , in the province of Genoa .
Luchin is a historic tavern located in the heart of Chiavari , founded in 1907 by Luca Bonino. Today the restaurant is managed by the fourth generation, who in addition to running the family business, also thought of bringing to light their own cellar in Lavagna - in which the great-great-grandmother Aurelia built and repaired the barrels in the 19th century - to make wine and bottle your own wine . Thus was born Cantine Luchin .
In Barilea di Cantine Luchin it has its origin from the selection of healthy and ripe Barbera grapes from a Nizza Monferrato cru , carefully brought to the Lavagna cellar and vinified by the family with the help of the great Riomaggiore winemaker and winemaker Walter De Battè .
Why you should drink it
The strength of Cantine Luchin 's A Barilea lies in its dualism : it is a wine that combines the typicality of the Nizza Monferrato area and the winemaking tradition of a completely different territory - the Ligurian - with its particularities , traditions and very personal way of making wine . A winning and certainly curious encounter between two regions with great potential , which by communicating and blending together give life to a product that has a little of one and a little of the other within it.
