Produced with Barbera grapes from the village of Serralunga d’Alba 70% and San Rocco Senodelvio 30%. The vines, trained with guyot method, are approximately 40 years old and yield an average of 3 tones per acre. The harvest usually takes place the first half of October. The grapes are collected in small baskets and immediately taken to the winery where they are de-stemmed and pressed. Fermentation happens on the skins in special, temperature controlled still vats for 8-10 days with frequent pump-over to extract coloring elements. After the alcoholic fermentation, the wine is stored in temperature-controlled vats to promote malolactic fermentation. In spring the wine is transferred into big-size Slovenian oak barrels to age for an average of 12 months. Then the Barbera is ready for bottling but it spends another 6 to 12 months at the winery after bottling. Excellent with meat dishes in general, risotto and with soft or hard cheeses. Served at 65F°
