Vite Colte Barbera d’Asti Superiore Luna e i Falo
This wine is made from 100% Barbera grapes.
The over 60 hectares of Barbera vineyards are rigorously selected by our viticulturists, all with low yields; every vineyard is participant in the “Superbarbera” project. The cuvée is blended from vineyards with slightly different soils and microclimates so that the final wine will offer a better balance between structural solidity and bouquet complexity. Vinification is traditional, with a 10 day maceration on the skins and a 28-30oC fermentation, followed quickly by the onset of malolactic. The wine then matures for about 12 months in small oak, about 1/3 new; here, the wine, already impressively structured, acquires a multi-layered depth of flavour and character, evolving into a richly-nuanced barbera of grace and expressiveness.
The colour is deep ruby red. A rich and deep bouquet, with a complex balance of violet, liquorice and vanilla notes. The palate is crisp and dry, with a subtly-veined background of vanilla and wild berries, which carry through to its lingering finish.
