Barbera D Asti, 2020 , aged in oak,
Due Bicchiere Gambero Rosso
Grape variety: Barbera
Alcohol: 14.0 % vol.
The over 60 hectares of Barbera vineyards are rigorously selected by our viticulturists, all with low yields; every vineyard is participant in the “Superbarbera” project.
The cuvée is blended from vineyards with slightly different soils and microclimates so that the final wine will offer a better balance between structural solidity and bouquet complexity.
Vinification is traditional, with a 10 day maceration on the skins and a 28-30oC fermentation, followed quickly by the onset of malolactic.
The wine then matures for about 12 months in small oak, about 1/3 new; here, the wine, already impressively structured, acquires a multi-layered depth of flavour and character, evolving into a richly-nuanced barbera of grace and expressiveness.
