Produced from Barbera grapes cultivated in vineyards in the Monferrato hills in the south of the province of Asti. The south west facing vineyards are at altitudes of between 250 and 400m and the soil is clay and limestone. Grapes are hand harvested at the start of October. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 25 - 30 degrees C. Pressed when dry and racked to stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation. The wine is then matured for 4-6 months in stainless steel tanks.
A fresh, sappy red with aromas of plum and raspberry. Bright, youthful fruit with notes of sour cherry, and a savoury spiciness. Delicious food wine with vibrant fruit, some grip and refreshing acidity on the finish.
Fantastic with pizza and pasta and plenty of Parmesan!
