Barbera d'Asti "Lavignone" DOCG PICO MACCARIO
Barbera d’Asti Lavignone by Pico Maccario is a complex and structured red wine. During the years, it became one of the most important and prestigious wines of the cellar. It is produced with 100% Barbera grapes, cultivated on hills full of minerals, due to the ancient presence of lakes. The manual harvest consists in a careful selection of the grapes. Once the bunches reach the cellar, the soft pressing starts, followed by 10-12 days maceration. The aging is developed in steel tanks for 9 months. After the bottling, the wine matures a few months before the selling. The vineyards are located in the prestigious DOCG area of Mombaruzzo, in the district of Asti. The harvest is organized at the end of September.
