Vinification and ageing

after 5-7 days of temperature controlled (31-34°C) fermentation in stainless steel, the wine completes the fermenting processes in barriques made of Allier oak, where it ages for about 18 months. This is followed by at least 6 months maturing in the bottle. The wine is released for sale in its second year of maturing

Note

excellent exposure and very low yields give excellent grapes which make it possible to obtain a wine with considerable complexity. Barbera is a really important grape variety capable of giving remarkable results: with this selection, dedicated to grandfather Giuseppe (“Gisep” in the local dialect), our estate proposes one of its best creations

Tasting characteristics

Appearance: deep purplish, almost impenetrable red

Bouquet: elegant, sweet and tempting, the fruity notes characteristic of Barbera emerge

Flavour: thanks to its structure and concentration, it offers the palate sensations that only great wines can give; it reveals a decisive character in the smoothness created by the ripe grapes and the maturing process; it is released for sale in its second year

It is best to serve it at temperatures between 18-20°C

Ideal with fresh egg pasta and rich, tasty sauces, with main courses featuring meat, such as the sumptuous e Piedmont-style assortment of boiled meats and meat stews. It is also perfect with medium-mature cow’s milk cheeses
