Barbera d’Asti D.O.C.G.

San Nicolao

Grape variety: Barbera

Alcohol: 13.0 % vol.

The 250 m. elevation, the traditional vine-training system, and consistently low yields combine to produce a wine with unique characteristics and a distinctive personality.
The wine is vinified in the traditional method, with a 10-day 25-28oC maceration on the skins.
The malolactic follows immediately the primary fermentation, then the wine is given further bottle-ageing to bring out the barbera varietal characteristics and to soften the wine to a velvety smoothness.


Wine Description

Colour: deep ruby red.
Bouquet: opulent and complex, with cherry notes.
Palate: dry, with rich, deep flavours, and a silky texture remarkable for such a young Barbera.
