Barbera d'Alba Superiore, Pairolero, Sottimano - 2020

Viticulture

The vineyards are located in the commune of Neive, with a south-western orientation, and a planting density of 10,000 vines/ha. They are on the Curra and Basarin crus, i.e. great terroirs renowned in the Barbaresco appellation.

Oenology

Produced with grapes from the Basarin and San Cristoforo vineyards in the municipality of Neive. After a maceration of about 25 days, during which the alcoholic fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature without the use of selected yeasts, the wine is run off into French oak barrels where it will undergo malolactic fermentation and then remain on the lees for 8 to 12 months. In total, the wine will be aged in wood for 15 months, before bottling without any filtration or clarification. The barrels used are new for 15% and second, third and fourth passage for the rest.
