The Wine’s Story
The name Barabba is a play on words with the grape variety Barbera. We liked the idea because just as Barabas in the bible was given a second chance, we felt that the Monferrato region also deserved a second chance in the face of other, better known regions such as the Langhe in Piedmont.
