|Production area||Merlot: grown in the Angolo vineyard facing north-west, which is characterized by white marl alternating with areas richer in iron and clay that give Merlot elegance and finesse. Barbera: grown in the Presidenta vineyard, it has a southern exposure west and is characterized by an alternation of calcareous marl with a soil rich in clay and iron. A fragrant and elegant Barbera is obtained on these slopes.|
|Winemaking and aging||The grapes are harvested according to their respective ripening times and carry out the alcoholic fermentation separately, in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Once the alcoholic fermentation is complete, the cut is made and the wine is ready for aging. Aging takes place in oak barrels for at least 12 months. From bottling, the wine undergoes another refinement in glass for 6 months.|
Barbera and Merlot, the Queen of Monferrato and the King of international vines. A wedding which Bricco dei Guazzi crowned as Presidenta, a red that needs patience before revealing itself to the glass. Its name recalls not only the vineyard from which its Barbera grapes come but above all, its elegant and complex character.
Excellent with tasty red meats, it happily pairs with game or as an accompaniment to long-aged cow cheese. Recommended serving temperature: 18° C.
