Descrizione vino

This Barbera d’Alba is produced with 100% Barbera grapes, cultivated in Borgata Massucchi, in the district of Perno, in Monforte d’ Alba, Piedmont. The vineyards have a south, south-west exposition and are located 300 meters above the sea level. The soils here are mainly composed by compact marls and clay. The plants of the vineyard, that are 30 years old, are trained on espaliers with the traditional Guyot method.  4500 units per hectare that produce around 80 quintals grapes. The wine making starts with the soft pressing and the elimination of stalks, followed by a long maceration that last 3 weeks. The fermentation is managed in steel containers at a controlled temperature of 28°C. The maturation, that lasts 6 months, is managed in steel too and it is followed by the aging, developed for 12 months in big barrels (50Hl) made of Slavonian oak.
