GRAPE VARIETIES barbera rare
IN THE GLASS lively red
Harvesting takes place towards the end of September, and
the grapes afterbeing
destemmed and crushed, under go maceration for eight to
ten days depending on the
characteristics of the vintage, in stainless steel tanks,
with frequent pumping over.
At the end of the malolactic fermentation the wineages in
stainless steel tanks for about 4/5 months. Before bottling
the spume develops in pressurized tanks to obtain a natural
Ruby red. To the nose, the initial vinous perceptions leave
space for an intense bouquet with hints of black currants
and marasca cherries.
Warm in the mouth smooth with acidy hints which mingle with
its full body.
Well accompanies meat filled ravioli; hot salami such as
typical Italian cotechino
or zampone, all roasted meats, mature and semi mature cheeses.
