2016 Barbera D’Asti La Vigna Vecchia

Winemaker’s Notes

The grapes are harvested in boxes and, trying to keep the fruit intact as much as possible, the crushing and subsequent fermentation of the sugars takes place in steel tanks at a temperature of 28/30 degrees . Once the sugars are exhausted, the racking takes place and after 2 decanting we proceed to check the malolactic fermentation. The refinement takes place for a minimum of one year in 50 hl oak barrels and a part in second wine barriques. Further refinement in the bottle for 6 months before release.

Tasting notes

Beautiful dark ruby colour the wine has strawberry, plum and leather on the nose. Medium bodied it
offers cherry, blackberry and chocolate on the palate with a long and complex finish.


Serving Suggestion

Perfect pairing for grilled white and red meats, a hearty meat sauce or medium aged cheeses.
