Barbera wine has always been at the heart of the Cossetti family's production, reaching the highest peaks in quality with this reserve. Castelnuovo Belbo and the San Colombano vineyard fall within the limited production area where, under strict regulations, Barbera bearing the title “Nizza” may be produced.
Steel vats at 28° with manual punch down, devatting after 10 days into small 500-litre oak barrels where alcoholic fermentation is gradually completed. Malolactic fermentation with controlled ambient temperature. After ageing in wood for at least a year, the wine is bottled with one gentle filtration.
A long ageing wine, with a bright ruby red colour that takes on a light shade of garnet over time. Gentle and persistent aroma of red berries with hints of plum well mixed with spices and vanilla. Well bodied with rich tannic structure, while still soft and balanced.
Matches deliciously with meat and game of international cuisine, excellent with the best aged cheeses. Suitable for consumption between meals for some pleasant conversation.
