The Barbera grapes are a selection from several vineyards in southern Asti, including the La Court estate. The light-colored soils are “Astian sands”, meaning from Asti, and are rich in lime and microelements. Temperature controlled fermentation, including 10 days of maceration on the skins, in stainless steel tanks yields the dark, rich color that is typical of great Barberas. The wine is aged in large French oak casks for 3 months then rests in stainless steel and in bottle before release for a total of 16 months aging.
Ruby red with violet hues, this elegant and intense wine offers notes of red cherry and red currants. A harmonious and well-structured wine with a beautiful savory finish.
