This 100% Barbera hail from the vineyard site La Crena, located in the village of Agliano Terme. The vineyard grows on loam-clay soil, and is planted with southern exposure, while the oldest part of the vineyard was planted in 1932. After harvest, the grapes are fermented over a couple of weeks in open-top stainless steel with mechanical punch-downs, délestage, and lots of open-air pump-overs. The wine then macerates for another week, then is racked and transferred into oak for malolactic fermentation to occur. The wine is then aged in a combination of barriques, Slovenia casks, and steel tanks for approximately 18 months.
Aromatically the wine has ripe notes of red raspberries, cherries, with lingering hints of warm baking scents. On the palate this Barbera is richer in style, being much more red fruit-forward, balancing acidity and well-integrated oak.
