Il Cascinone Rive Barbera d’Asti Superiore DOCG

2014

In a Nutshell

Classic barrique-aged Barbera d'Asti from Araldica's oldest vineyards.

Tasting Notes

A deep garnet hued Barbera with vibrant aromas of black cherries and prunes with chocolate and toasty oak undertones and a touch of mint. The palate shows redcurrant and black cherry fruit with a spicy kick, taut acidity and fine oak tannins.

Production Notes

The grapes for Rive Barbera are hand-picked, de-stemmed and crushed then inoculated with selected yeasts. The must is fermented in temperature controlled, stainless steel vats with pumping over four times a day. The wine is pressed just before dryness and then racked to a mixture of new (2/3) and one year old (1/3) French oak barriques, where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and is aged for 18 months. The wine is left to develop in bottle for 6 months before being released.
