Podere Ruggeri Corsini Barbera d'Alba 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

The vineyard covers a surface of 2.2 hectares and is about 420/480 metres above sea level, facing east: the soil is clayey calcareous. The vines are vertically trellised, pruned the ‘Guyot’ way, and the density is of 5000 plants per hectare, planted in 1996, 1998 and 2000. The average final production is of about 20000 0.75lt bottles. Vinification starts after a manual harvest in crates, starting with immediate stalk removal, followed by three pump overs a day for the first week. Maceration lasts eight days. After the racking, decantering and the malolactic fermentation have occurred, the wine is then left to stand in stainless steel vats for 10-14 months, and is later bottled in autumn. Barbera d’Alba DOC is a typical Piedmontese barbera wine with a striking underlying acidity that makes it particularly enjoyable to drink, especially during its first two to three years of life, but can also be appreciated after four to six years. Ideally paired with starters and cold meats, pasta dishes with butter or cheese sauces, such as the traditional ‘plin’ ravioli, or risottos and creamy cheeses.
