DESCRIPTION:

Produced from only from the oldest and best Barbera vines on the estate and as we know the older the vines the lower the yield. The fermentation process begins in larger steel vats and ends with the wine being transferred to wooden barriques in order to enhance the range of aromas and smoothen the sharp tannins. A fresh bouquet of sour cherry, black berry and red plum. A deep palate beginning with red fruit and finishing with lavender and nutmeg. This wine has the potential to age in bottle for 5 or 6 years.
