SPECIES OF GRAPES Barbera 100% PRODUCTION AREA Own vineyards, in the comune of Nizza Monferrato Even before harvest-time, in the oldest vineyards are chosen those grapes that are fully ripe, these are then crefully picked and vinified separately. There follows a period of againg in oka barriques (small casks with a capacity of 225 litres) which lasts as long as is necessary to bestow an which, before being shipped off for sale, Barcarato remains in the bottle for a further eight months. ORGANOLEPTIC CHARACTERISTICS Very bright ruby-red colour. Harmonoius, intense and resulte bouquet, with hints of violets. It has a full and satisfying taste, just tannic enough for the calibrate time the wine remains in the casks, robust in charcter and tenor; when imbibed, its many pleasant aromans are released. Goes well with: the usual range of food for a hight-class Barbera: red meat game and substantial second courses, but it also has what it takes to be sipped contemplatively. Reccomended serving temperature: 18-22° C.
