Clear, bright red: a dense, luminous and intriguing colour. The olfactory profile is caressing, with intense aromas of violet standing out among the others. When tasted it reveals a good, inviting and warm structure. The hints of black cherry enhance its pleasantness, and a soft finish seals the tasting experience with echoes of velvety sensations.

Vinification

The classic winemaking process involves the harvesting of grapes in September, soft destalking and crushing, and the preparation of a must rich in peels to enhance the intake of aromas and suggestive notes. The maturation in the cellar refines the wine, and the last stages of processing stabilize the characteristics before bottling. The Barbera IGT Provincia di Pavia follows a cycle of processes marked by ancient customs, partly (perhaps) responsible for its unique and consistent characteristics over time.
