VARIETY: Barbera

VINEYARD: Estate vineyards with an excellent exposure. Clay soil, marine origin, with a slight presence of sand. The grapes are hand-harvested in mid-September. Grapes from Certified Sustainable Agriculture.

VINIFICATION AND AGEING: After a soft destemming, the traditional skin-contact maceration lasts for 10-12 days in temperature controlled tanks. This process is followed by the first racking at the end of which the malolactic fermentation starts. The refining lasts for about 4-5 months and is carried out in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature. After the bottling, the wine rests for a short period in lay-down bottles in our cellar, until it reaches a perfect refining.
