Barbera “la Bimba” 2016 limited production Italian wine
Barbera d'Asti Red Wine "La Bimba" 2016 - Gianluigi Orsini - 0,75 L
Gianluigi has dedicated a lot of dedication and care from the first phase to bottling. Even the names have been chosen with such care, reflecting the life of Gianluigi, what distinguished him, his affections and what is most important in his life: his wife and daughters.
In particular, this, which he considers one of the best among his wines, calls it "La Bimba", that we could translate it with "the little girl", as the nickname with which he used to call his wife because she is small compared to him.
