BARBERA D’ALBA DOC “superiore”

The grapes are hand-picked in mid-October, placed in perforated baskets for their transport to the cellar. The yield of grapes per hectare is 100 quintals.
The fermentation takes place in thermoregulated stainless steel tanks at 28°C with frequent daily pumping over for 15 days. The wine is placed in oak barrels for 4 months. The wine is never filtered, and is left to further age in the bottle.

This wine has a bright colour, balanced acidity and complexity enclosed in a smooth, velvety glove with cherry and plum aromas. Perfect wine for first courses with meat sauce, roast chicken or soufflés, braised meats and cheeses. Ideal for those who love a Barbera that can be drunk immediately but has good ageing potential for 8-10 years, while maintaining its freshness and simultaneously improving the balance of aromas and the roundness that characterize it. Balanced acidity and complexity enclosed in a smooth, velvety glove with cherry and plum aromas.
