Barbera d'Asti Docg

A grape growing, wine producing Piedmontese Estate couldn't, without doubt, not produce a good Barbera!

We have unearthed the traditional vocation of this zone of the Alto Monferrato, today rediscovering the type of Barbera which we remember fondly from our youth, accompanying everyday afternoon breaks with bread, salami and cheese, locally known as "merende sinoire".

Type of wine:

Red wine.

Position of the vineyards:

In the Commune of Cassine (Alessandria province). Exposure: South, 240 m.

Grape variety:

Barbera 100%.

Vinification:

A traditional vinification. Temperature controlled maceration with regular pumpings over. Skin contact lasts around 10 days aiming to achieve an optimum extraction of colour, flavours and tannins. Subsequent malolactic fermentation in stainless still tanks.

To be drunk with:

Ideal with local salumi and tajarin and other kinds of pasta. Perfect also with fresh cheeses.

Tasting notes:

Colour: ruby red with intense violet hues

Bouquet: strong and rich typical aromas of blackberries, raspberries and ripe cherries

Taste: a mouthfilling elegant character with excellent balance

Technical data for the 2012 vintage:

Alcohol: 14,5% alc./vol.

Total acidity: 6,69 g/l in tartaric acid
