A life of beer and grapes.
Nicola Perra, brewer, is a pioneer in the Italian beer industry with a grape wort experimenting scene. BB10 first came in a row of three such themed creations, its malts meeting self-grown Cannonau grapes. The result marked the future of the Italian brewing scene and it’s still incredible today after many, many years. We hope you’ll try it and enjoy it to confirm!
What's Terroir? It's a geographic place, a technical place, a space of the Soul. It's the humus making ingredients, plants, cereals, vine spring: but it also is a culture, the craftsmanship of people manipulating raw materials, the conjunction of all concrete and abstract elements concurring to the creation of a product. Is this concept applicable to Beer, whose key ingredients, barley and hops, are often originated far from the territory where they're finally processed to become beverage? Gourmet Italy thinks for the answer to this to be Yes. The Barley Brewery, located in Maracalagonis (CA), carries in its creation a strongly sardinian sensory footprint: hops and malts, knowledgeably chosen by the owner and brewer Nicola Perra, meet local ingredients (indigenous grapes, honey, fruit) to propose a culture of making and drinking deeply rooted in the generous and wild spirit of the Island.
Scheda di degustazione.
A precious Barley wine, BB10 accounts on a 10% ABV. Naturally vinous, it boasts a sumptuous Porto-styled body: by the nose, a clearly ethylic note reminds of raisins, an intense caramel, chocolate, cinnamon. These feeling intertwine with the constant presency of Cannonau grapes: treat this beer carefully, as if it was an after dinner liquor; or match it as a dessert drink to ricotta-based sweets, quince jellies; and tart, pungent cheeses.
