The Wine for real VESPA fans! Barbera is one of the classic Grapes of Italy's Piedmont region, though it is popular throughout much of Northwest Italy and has gained a following in California. Searing acidity has been a trait of Barbera though modern viticultural techniques and warmer regions have tamed the acidity, resulting in medium-bodied wines with bright, red fruit tones that feature hints of violets, earth and plum with just a whisper of tannin.
LABEL: A family portrait on a vintage Vespa, a symbol of the 50s, the years of the reconstruction. A happy picture that stresses the values and the simplicity of the family’s business. Childrens’ eyes that look into the bright future of today.
It’s the classic Barbera-vine, that grows on different hilly vinyards. Every hectare of land holds about 5000 vines that carry 8500-9000kg of grapes, which equals 60-62 hectoliters of wine. The grape harvest starts at the end of September. The grapes are carefully chosen and instantly vinified. The fermentation of the most in temperature-controlled environment takes 6-7 days. The repeated circulation has positive effects on the extraction of colour pigments and scent. After the most has been decanted with the utmost care, the malolactic fermentation can begin. After a short period of ripening, the vine is filled into bottles. Fresh and well-flavoured, which is typical for its youth, it can be drunk only a few months later. It can just as well be stored for many years.
The intensely ruby colour proves the wine’s freshness. A long lasting flavour, fruity, reminding of flowers and fresh fruits. Dry, harmonious, spicy and well balanced in taste. A happy invitation to toast and dine.
