BARBERA D'ALBA 2015

Classification

Barbera d'Alba D.O.C.

Grapes

Barbera 100%

Origin & Soil

vineyards in the townships of Barbaresco, Treiso, Alba, and Barolo with soils created by strong marine currents during the Miocene epoch, mixed in composition with sand and clay as the principal elements

Taste

a ruby red in color with purple highlights, grapey in aroma with floral (roses) and spicy notes from the aging in oak, full and balanced in flavor. A very versatile wine, its roundness and suppleness make it an excellent match with a full range of dishes as, for example, the traditional fried meats and vegetables and the pot-au-feu of Piedmont. It is best drunk at a temperature of 16° centigrade (60° Fahrenheit)

Climate Vintage

The year 2015 began with a very snowy winter, which helped create an abundant store of groundwater in the sub-soil. A mild spring led to an early start to plant growth and development, and this lasted all the way through the entire growing season. No rain fell from mid-June on, and temperatures stabilized at levels above seasonal averages until the end of August.

This lengthy heat wave did not influence in any way the ripening of the grapes thanks, in addition to other factors, to the accumulated reserves of moisture in the soil. The harvest began in early September with the Arneis and Moscato grapes, continued with the Dolcetto and Barbera crop, and terminated at the end of the month with the Nebbiolo. The entire crop was of excellent level from every point of view, both in terms of the healthiness of the grapes and of analytical data on sugar and acidity as well

Vintage

the grapes were very healthy and with an excellent balance of all their components (sugars, acidity, and polyphenols). Destemmed and then pressed, the must fermented for approximately 5-7 days on its skins at temperatures between 28° and 30° centigrade (82°-86° Fahrenheit). The malolactic fermentation finished in mid-December. We bland the different wines, from different vineyards and then we bottle them
