After a July pruning to concentrate the yield, only the best Barbera grapes are hand harvested in late autumn from old vines planted in the 1940’s and 50’s. The rigorous selection process provides a strong foundation for the purple and plum hues with notes of sweet tobacco, leather and spice. After a soft pneumatic controlled pressing and de-stemming process, the winemaking continues with traditional malolactic fermentation and aging in a combination of traditional French oak and elegant Slavonian oak known for its ability to draw out the wines natural character. Typically, it ages 18 months in large barriques, 6 in small barriques and 12 months in the bottle prior to release. Decant and serve at 60-65F.
