Ricossa Barbera Appassimento Piemonte DOC

Varietal: Barbera


Calcareous clayey soil which are perfect for the production of wine, giving complex aromas. Grapes are handpicked and laid in small cases of 5 kg for about 5-6 weeks in a dry, temperature controlled room with fans used for ventilation. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at 26-30°C for about 2 weeks.

The wine has a beautiful medium ruby color with matching highlights. The bouquet is rich with homemade blackberry jam, violet, vanilla, fig, and almonds. In
its youthful phase the palate is full-bodied while fresh and elegant. Over time it
becomes rounder and more complex while maintaining a unique softness.

Alcohol: 13.5%
