Variety: 100% Barbera
Location of vineyards: Canale – Piedmont – Italy.
Soil: Clay and calcareous.
Harvest: late September – early October.
Vinification: Maceration takes place in steel fermentation tanks, which are temperature-controlled during the fermentation process, lasting about 4-5 days. Then, the wine rests in oak barrels, where the malolactic fermentation takes place. After malolactic fermentation, the wine remains in the oak barrels until it is bottled.
Sensory Profile: The nose is fragrant and reminiscent of the bramble and forest floor, with sweet and sour cherries but not too overpowering. On the palate the wine is considerably powerful, but also has a certain softness. It pairs well with meat dishes, small game and aged soft cheeses.
Serve at: 18 ° C.
