Tasting note:

The Barbera d’Asti zone, offers more elegant red fruits and an even more ‘nervy’ style than the Barbera d’Alba. A great look at a lesser known, but delicious and vivacious face of the variety. Very good and readily adaptable food wine, with fruitiness, acid and vital savoury characters in fine balance.

Production: Fermentation on skins for 7 days. After racking off, the wine is left to mature in big wooden barrels and then stainless steel vats for one year before bottling
