Denomination:

Country of Origin:
Italy

Type:
Red/Rouge (Still)

Grape Variety:
Barbera

Vinification:
The Barbera grapes have to be harvested between the end of September and the first decade of October. The Du Gir vineyard is the last Barbera vineyard to be harvested.
Once in the winery, grapes are destemmed and crushed. Then, put in a horizontal thermo-conditioned vinificator with rotating blades, where the alcoholic fermentation takes place. Alcoholic fermentation lasts about one week at a temperature of 28-30°C.
After racking and pouring, the wine remains in contact with its lees (temperature of 20-22 °C) for at least two months while it completes the malo-lactic fermentation.
Now the wine is ready to start the ageing in oak barrels. New barriques (225l) are used.  Ageing lasts 20 months. Eventually, after  almost 2 years from the harvest, the Barbera d’Alba DOC Du Gir is bottled and, after at least 6 months of storage in our cellar, it is ready to be marketed.

Tasting Notes:
Colour: deep ruby red full of blackish-purple reflexes;
Bouquet: very fruity (specially black berries and plums)and well-balanced with the hints of vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa and tobacco typical of the ageing in oak barrels;
Taste: outstandingly full while always well-balanced and round
