|About 70-80 q/ha.
|Monferrato alessandrino – Olivola, 15-year-old vineyards in terraces from 150 to 250 m asl
|Barbera grows in vineyards facing south- west, such as the Torre Vineyard which is characterized by its alternation of calcareous marl with soils rich in clay and iron, peculiarities that allow to obtain elegant and fragrant wines.
|Winemaking and aging
|The grapes are crushed and de-stemmed and the marc obtained is left to macerate for a week in contact with the musts at a temperature between 25 ° and 28 ° C, in large stainless steel tanks. Frequent pumping over allows excellent color extraction and good body. The malolactic fermentation is carried out and then, the wine is placed in barrels of 15-20 hectoliters for about 12 months. A bottle refinement of at least 4 months follows.
A wine capable of expressing its typicality while freeing itself from the stereotype that Barbera is an edgy wine. Great thickness and excellent balance in each component, for a round and fascinating wine, easy to approach.
Perfect throughout the whole meal with traditional Monferrato dishes, such as agnolotti with three roasts, and San Damiano D’Asti capon. Ideally paired with platters of cheese and typical cold cuts, such as the black velvet of the Queen and the Baciato di Ponzone fillet. Recommended serving temperature: 16-18° C.
