FROM THE VINTNER:
“Our Barbera comes from a friend’s vineyards in Monforte d’Alba who shares our philosophy and lets us care for the grapes throughout the growing season. Barbera needs hot and semi-dry summers to perform well and good canopy cleaning to avoid problems while ripening. As the grapes begin to ripen, excess clusters are cut. The grapes are then hand harvested early October in cases of 20 kg each. After harvest, the grapes are destemmed without crushing and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 15-25 days. We focus on extracting the few tannins that Barbera has without losing color and aromatics. Following malolactic fermentation the wine ages for 4 months in oak cask and 8 months in concrete. It is then bottled between October and January.”
