Barbera d’Asti DOCG

"San Nicolao"
Winemaking Philosophy

The average altitude of 250 metres, the traditional vine training technique, and management of the vineyards to obtain low yields allow the production of a wine with surprising characteristics and personality. Vinification is traditional, with maceration on skins for 10 days, at a temperature of 25-28 °C.
Malolactic fermentation takes place immediately after alcoholic fermentation and is followed by a period of bottle ageing to enhance the wine's characteristics and exceptional smoothness.
