The Povero family has roots in Piedmont since 1837. Grandfather Tumlin’s precious heritage has been carried forward by the Povero brothers as expressed in this beautiful Barbera D’Asti called Contrada Maestra. The name of the grape “Barbera” comes from the traditional “barbero” horse used in the old “palio”, a race between horses dating back to medieval times. Barbera grape was born in Asti area, and that’s why the Barbera of Asti is a DOCG wine (highest level of certification of origin). Its a light and fresh wine, easy-drinking with fruity notes.
