Tasting Notes: The Trediberri Barbera is not smoothed by any oak aging and henceforth it is characterized by a bright acidity and a pretty high level of alcohol, if compared to the other Trediberri wines. This wine shows a full body and highlights a fruity character, rather than elegance and finesse.

Winemaking Notes:
The grapes come from the Roero area and from estate vineyards surrounding the hamlet Torriglione, next to the winery. Barbera is the only variety to whom they systematically apply a green harvest in order to reduce the yields. Alcoholic fermentation happens in concrete and stainless steel and lasts around 12-15 days. Then malolactic takes place in concrete and/or stainless steel and cold stabilization happens outdoor or in conditioned steel tanks. After stabilization, the wine ages for some months in concrete, steel, and plastic, before being bottled, usually in April-May of the year after the harvest.

About the Label: Artist Pierflavio Gallina is the creator of the Trediberri labels. He was born in Santo Stefano Belbo, a Piemontese village made famous by a local writer called Cesare Pavese, from whom he inherited his passion for Langhe and its hills. Moving to a permanent studio in La Morra, he has become one of the most important artists of the Piemontese landscape. His work forms part of many important public and private collections, including those of: Regione Piemonte, the Robert Mondavi Collection in California, the Museo Civico di Recanati and the Regional Enoteca in Barolo. Through personal friendship and a love of his watercolors, Trediberri labels were born: the fluidity and color of his paintings are the perfect representation of their style and their way of seeing wine.
