Barbera del Monferrato D.O.C. 1.5l Gr.12.50
Barbera grapes, given their very generous yield per hectare, gives us the ability to produce over the range of the 0.75 lt bottle. This type is a little ´our workhorse on the domestic market and is addressed to the restaurants and private consume. It´s designed for a daily consumption thanks to a smaller level of alcohol and a lighter structure, which gives to the consumer the opportunity to appreciate every day the pleasant freshness and quality, characteristics typical of the more famous wine Barbera.
It is grown on mixed soils, ¨patchy type¨ with breeding system in espalier with guyot pruning, manual operation of the foliage and grass that covers the ground. The density of the plant is 5000-6000 plants / ha and the yield is about 1.5-2 kg. of grapes per wine. The manual harvest is made on fully ripe bunches (lignification of the stalk) usually on the end of September.
The vinification is the pressing of the grapes then left to ferment and macerate with the skins hat revealed at a controlled temperature with light pumping for 7 days. Approx. Racking follows that the marc is separated from the must / wine and the alcoholic fermentation ends the process. After that begins the ¨malolactic¨ process in stainless steel tanks. Thus maintains a good balance between alcohol content and acidity that allow it to be a wine suitable for daily consumption.
Then follows stabilization, microfiltration and bottling. With an intense ruby red colour and a winy and fruity scent, it has a full and inviting flavour and may accompany traditional as well as more elaborate dishes.
