Barbera d’Alba DOC

Vine variety
Barbera
Characteristics
The southern exposure and the sandy soil, typical of the Roero area, enhance to the maximum the potential of this vine variety. The wine obtained is a very intense garnet red, with very visible ruby shades. The aroma is enveloping and complex. It gives its best after an accurate oxygenation in the decanter. Its intense structure allows a long aging.
Fermentation
Alcoholic fermentation and maceration in stainless steel for 7/10 days. The malolactic fermentation occurs naturally, in stainless steel, with the temperature increase during the summer months.
Refinement
In french oak tonneaux (500 litres) for about 18/20 months.
Available vintages
Those wines, which due to unfavourable climatic conditions do not achieve the desired characteristics, are not labelled.
