Barbera d'Asti D.O.C.G. - 2019
Energy, vivacity and brilliance are the perfect sensations to describe our Barbera d'Asti. This is the reason why we have combined Orange, a colour that follows the whiplash of energy and warmth that accompanies the tasting of our wine. Orange, moreover, is a warm color, as warm is the feeling that leaves you with a glass of our Barbera d'Asti.
WHY WE LIKE
We like Barbera because it is pimply and "piaciona", a glass never refuses. With its bouquet of cherries and its round and soft body would make even the most difficult taster fall in love. Obviously it is La Barbera, because Barbera, as Carducci, Pascoli and Monelli remind us, is a woman.

The grapes are destemmed, crushed and stored in stainless steel tanks, where the alcoholic fermentation takes place first and then the malolactic fermentation.
