In a Nutshell
With a label inspired by the vintage bomber art of the 50's, Barbera Da Vine is eye-catching, fresh and juicy.
A light, juicy red with aromas of raspberries, plums and cherries. On the palate, sour cherry and bramble fruit combine with soft tannins and a savoury spiciness, making this an approachable wine with tangy red fruit and refreshing acidity on the finish.
Produced from Barbera grapes cultivated in vineyards in the Monferrato hills in the south of the province of Asti. The south- west facing vineyards are at altitudes of between 250 and 400m and the soil is clay and limestone. Planting density is 4,000 - 4,500 vines per hectare and the Piemonte low Guyot trellis system is used. Grapes are hand harvested at the start of October. Average yield is 5,300 litres per hectare. Temperature-controlled fermentation followed by malolactic fermentation, and maturation for 4-6 months in stainless steel.
