Production area and characteristics

The grapes come from the hills around Alba. The geological conformation of the land and exposure of the selected vineyards result in high quality grapes.

Vinification

The slightly late-harvested Barbera is destemmed and soft crushed. Nebbiolo grapes are added halfway through fermentation, which takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Maceration lasts about 30 days.

 

Ageing

After malolactic fermentation, the new wine is decanted into small second and third passage French oak casks where it ages for about six months.
