Terre da Vino Barbera d'Asti Superiore la Luna E I Falò 2008
Vinification is traditional, with a 15 day maceration on the skins and a 28-30oC fermentation, followed quickly by the onset of malolactic. The wine then matures for about 12 months in small oak, about 1/3 new; here, the wine, already impressively structured, acquires a multi-layered depth of flavour and character, evolving into a richly-nuanced Barbera of grace and expressiveness. SENSORY PROFILE Colour: Deep ruby red. Bouquet: Rich and deep, with a complex balance of violet, liquorice, and vanilla notes. Palate: Crisp and dry, with a subtly-veined background of vanilla and wild berries, which carry through to its lingering finish.
