Barbera d’Alba DOC

Winemaking Philosophy

The vineyards are located in recently formed soils (dating back to five million years ago where numerous marine fossils, left behind when the Padana sea withdrew, can still be found. These sandy soils, which contain almost no limestone at surface level and are mainly siliceous, tend to be rather dry loose, soft soils which make it possible to bring out the fruity characteristics of the wine.
Vinification is traditional, with maceration on skins for 10 days and fermentation at a temperature of 25-28 °C. This is followed by malolactic fermentation in steel.
