Barbera from the Alto Monferrato in the Province of Asti. A full bodied wine from an area best known for this Barbera grape. Dark fruits dominate with a hint of something meaty. Best served with food in the colder months.
The grapes are de-stemmed and placed in 50 hl cement tanks, where they remain for about twenty days. During this time, spontaneous fermentation takes place in contact with the grape skins without controlling the temperature. 3-4 punch downs a day are carried out as needed.
After racking, the refinement takes place in 20 hl oak barrels for about 8 months. The wine is then aged in bottles for 2 months before release.
No filtration, clarification of any kind, and without any additions of sulfites.
