Medium Body, Fruity (Barbera). DOCG. Alc 14.5%.
Important grape for Italy, especially Piedmont. One of the widest planted and most versatile. The Barbera vines grow on hillside vineyards east of Turin (Colline Torinesi) in the area of Castelnuovo Don Bosco.
As a Barbera D'Asti DOCG, the style is brighter and more fruit-forward in comparison to its cousin from Alba. This will be a great pairing with tomato based dishes such as traditional style pizza or pasta, as well as richer dishes like BBQ.
Barbera, after long years of oblivion, represents nowadays one of the most remarkable products of Piedmont wine making. A drastic lowering of yields has allowed to keep down the excessive acidity and to obtain a youg wine, with an intense ruby-red colour. its intense perfumes introduce pleasant fruity scents, among which blackberry prevails. It’s a well structured wine with a bright acidity balanced by fruity flavours, dry, persistent. The tannic note is well perceptible but not intrusive. This wine stay in the bottle for few years. We recommend that the wine is served at about 18°. It complements hearty dishes of red meats, and aged cheeses.
We make this wine from our Barbera grapes, with careful attention to carry out extreme soft pressing. The wine passes through a special machinery developed by us for the mixing without pumps. The fermentation process takes one week to reach a temperature of 28°. the maturation is carried out in steel barrels to exalt only the fruity perfumes.
