Technical notes

Vinification: the fermentation takes place at 30° C in steel tanks with frequent pumping-over process in order to optimize the extraction of colour. Nebbiolo is then immediately separated from the skins, while Barbera remains in contact with them for a week. The different maceration process applied to Barbera and Nebbiolo perfectly combine the tannin and elegant bouquet of Nebbiolo together with the fresh and smooth taste of Barbera.

Ageing: the two wines are aged separately for a few month, partly in Allier-oak small casks, partly in Slavonian oak casks. After 8 months the two wines are blended and further aged for 4 months in large oak casks.

Pairings

Pleasant accompaniment throughout the meal. Perfect companion to flavourful starters, white and red meats, fresh and mild aged cheeses.
