Barbera d’Alba “Affinato in Botte Grande”
100% Barbera from vines located in Perno in the village of Monforte d'Alba, on the right slope in front of Castiglione Falletto. The vineyard sits at 350m with a western exposure; the soils are loamy and sandy, and the vines are planted at a high density (4,000 plants per hectare). The fruit was harvested in late October. Fermentation lasted for 10-12 days at 25-30°C, with pumpovers and airing twice a day and frequent racking.
