Area of planting:
This Barbera d’Asti is produced from grapes which are subject to a rigorous selection process which begins in the vineyard with the careful and often severe thinning of the bunches. These precious berries are gathered with extreme care and the bunches of grapes are placed gently in small crates to avoid damaging them. After processing, the wine is left to refine for 18 months in small, precious, French oak barrels which enable it to reach a specific maturity thanks to the formation of aromas which enhance its quality. After bottling, the bottles are laid horizontally to rest for a few months before being packaged.
