Barbaresco Riserva DOCG

"Spezie"
Winemaking Philosophy

The vineyards where this Riserva originates are located at soils which contain Sant'Agata Fossil marls and roughly textured clay.
Alcoholic fermentation is traditional, at a temperature of 28-30 °C, and lasts about 25 days with the "submerged cap" tecnique. 

Malolactic fermentation is followed by a period of ageing in oak barrels, where the wine spends up to two years.
Another long ageing in the bottle is needed to favour and complete the balance.
