Vinification and ageing

the wine ferments for 10-12 days in stainless steel at temperatures between 31-33° C. This is followed by malolactic fermentation and a short period of maturing in stainless steel; the wine is usually bottled and released for sale during the spring after the harvest

Note

thanks to the meticulous selection processes, excellent exposure and very low yields, very high quality grapes are obtained, giving very complex wines. With this product we wish to propose the typical characteristics of traditional Barbera: intriguing freshness, good body and a long finish

Tasting characteristics

Appearance: deep purplish, almost impenetrable red

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

Flavour: vinous, fresh and well balanced. An easy to drink wine which is tasty and rich without being excessively binding

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

Perfect with Langhe cuisine and very tasty dishes in general. Excellent with past, rice and soup, braised or grilled red meats and medium-mature cheeses. It is also perfect for aperitifs, with appetisers and sliced meats
