BARBERA D’ALBA SUPERIORE
The Barbera Superiore is a selection of our best vineyards. The best, for us, are the older vineyards (Bricco delle Viole) and those with soils poor of energy (Bricco Bertone). This is the magic of the vine: these strained plants produce the finest bunches and the most crunchy and tasteful berries. The Barbera Superiore is a wine of intense aromatic strength, structure, energy and longevity. A Barbera that speaks the language of the terroirs it is coming from
Vineyards and terroir
Up to 1998, the Barbera Superiore was a selection of the Barbera grapes of Bricco delle Viole, vineyard on the most Western slopes of Barolo. Its soil is made up of white clay marne, rich of magnesium and manganese, with limited levels of iron. Our family is proud to save these ancient vines of Barbera in the middle of our best Nebbiolo vineyards. The vineyard Bricco Bertone, at the left side of Talloria river, has the same origins and qualities as the well-known bordering Serralunga d’Alba crus. The particular composition and nature of the soils, the steep slopes, Talloria river on one side and a wonderful woodland on the other made us fall in love with this vineyard. The logical consequence is a deep respect for this uncontaminated land
Harvest and winemaking
In 2013, the harvest for the Barbera Superiore started on October 14th. The harvest, as well as the transport in small crates, are manually carried out to preserve the whole fruit. A triple selection ensures the best quality of the grapes: first in the vineyard, observing the grapes on the vine, and later with a double sorting in the cellar. Maceration has had an exceptionally long life: about 35 days before racking. The warmth of spring helped the malolactic fermentation, which is essential to smoothen the acidity of Barbera and make the wine bloom
