Barbera d’Asti Tre Vigne 2019
Designation: Barbera d’Asti D.O.C.G.
Grapes: 100% Barbera
Winemaking: The grapes are sourced from the La Crena vineyards in Agliano Terme and from several other villages in the hills around Asti. Average density is 4,500 plants per hectare. The process starts with a pre-fermentative cold maceration, followed by an alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel for approximately 2 weeks, with frequent daily pumping over and délèstage operations. Subsequent post-fermentative maceration on the skins. After racking the wine is moved into barriques for malolactic fermentation.
Aging: Barriques, big barrels and steel tanks for approximately 12 months.
Description: Ruby red colour with mineral and vanilla notes. Medium-bodied, dry wine with a crisp acidity (perfect for the whole meal) and soft tannins. This Barbera is very well balanced, with a good complexity and a red cherry finish.
Food pairings: Appetizers, rich salads, grilled seasonal vegetables, soups, stews, pasta, veal, pork, chicken with light sauces.
