Barbera D Asti DOC Sopra Berruti 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: This wine takes its inspiration from Asti's classic Barberas, which are generally rich in bouquet and colour; although sometimes aggressive on the palate, they are a perfect accompaniment for local dishes, including processed meats and cheeses. Aging potential: This wine can age from 3-4 to 6-7 years, depending on the structure, colour, alcohol and acidity specific to each vintage. Colour: Ruby red with purple tinges, changing to grenadine after a few years in the bottle. Nose: Intense stone fruit (mostly cherries), strawberries, violets, occasionally almonds. Palate: Tasty and full bodied. Enjoyable acidity, light but clear tannins, softening with aging. Pairings: Best with red and grilled meat, charcuterie and cheese, soups and venison; an ideal match for fat and tasty dishes, which highlight its "mouth-cleasing" properties. Serving temperature: 18-20° C. Percentage Grape: Barbera 100% Soil: The grapes come from vineyards between 25 and 67 years old, located in Canelli, Moasca and San Marzano Oliveto. The specific proportion from each vineyard varies every year, based on the analytical composition of the grapes, in an effort to keep the sensory characteristics as well as the quality of the product constant. Date of Harvest: 2006/10/08 Type of Harvest: manual in 20 Kg cases Vinification Method: Depending on the season's weather pattern, harvest usually begins between September 17th and October 8th. Immediately after standard vinification in steel and in wooden vats, 20% of the product is stored in oak and 80% in steel tanks. Approximately 6 months later, the two batches are blended, then completion of malo-lactic fermentation is allowed, followed by a period during which the wine is left to settle naturally before bottling. Bottle Type: bordolese Alcohol Percentage: 13.5 % Aging Potential: This wine can age from 3-4 to 6-7 years Cork Material: cork Cork Size: 25 x 44
