Winemaking Notes: The grapes are harvested by hand. They macerate with their skins at a controlled temperature in rotary fermenters for 3-4 days. The wine ages for 5 months in French barriques. Fermentation occurs naturally with indigenous yeast as does the malolactic fermentation. The wine is not fined, filtered, or clarified. No substances that could modify the color or the structure of the wine is ever used.

Tasting Notes: The 2020 Barbera d'Alba is juicy, fresh, and alive with great acidity on the palate. There is a nice taste of dark red fruits.

    The 2020 Barbera d'Alba is soft, fruity and inviting. Bright red/plum fruit, cinnamon, rose petal and mint are pushed forward. This juicy, refreshing Barbera is a real charmer.
