The Monferrato hills are an agrarian paradise, home to a number of modestly priced gems. Barbera reigns here, and the local climate favors a rich, juicy expression. Valpane winemaker Pietro Arditi is keen to honor the estate’s past by crafting Barbera the traditional way—farming naturally, fermenting with native yeasts, and aging in neutral vessels such as concrete tanks and large oak tonneaux. This 2004, now at age twelve, has reached optimal maturity: plump and smooth with hints of earth and spices, it is the perfect accompaniment to roasted meats and savory ragùs. –Anthony Lynch
