Barbera d’Asti Superiore
Our Barbera Superiore is the Monferrato par excellence, proud and lashing. Its grapes grow in the Costa vineyard, the perfect vineyard for this variety: steep, dry, sunny, harsh, but capable of infusing body and structure to this intense and long-lived wine.
50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot
18 months in barrique plus at least another 6 months in the bottle
Monferrato alessandrino – Olivola
After destemming and pressing, 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. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is placed partly in French oak barrels and partly in 15-20 hectolitre barrels for about 12 months, followed by at least 4 months of bottle aging.
