Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) The grapes for this wine are grown in the subarea of Bussìa, in the grounds of Cascina Canavere in the Commune of Monforte. Fermented with the skins this wine matures for a year in 60 hectolitre casks. The ruby red colour, fresh scents of fruit and pastries, consistent and full-bodied taste makes this wine refined and elegant.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) BARBERA D'ALBA Controlled Denomination of Origin The vine is strong, versatile and gives a good yield. It is considered a superior wine. Barbera d'Alba presents organolepric features that differ from zone to zone. These characteristics become more evident after fining. It becomes a D.O.C. wine soon after the vintage, and after one year's ageing in wooden casks it can be called "Superiore".
