Wine making
Grapes are destemmed and softly crushed, maceration for 8/10 days in steel tanks at a maximum temperature of 28° C, manual pump-overs and frequent delestages during the initial phases of fermentation. Maceration is aimed at extracting softer tannins and obtaining well-structured and full-bodied wines. Barbera wine owes its originality to the special balance between sweet and sour tones. That’s why alcoholic fermentation is followed by malolactic fermentation. Thanks to this the wine acquires its distinctive balance and its best expression.
