WinemakerElio Perrone

Grapes 100% Barbera

Winemaking

The Barbera d'Asti Mongovone is produced from 80-year old vines in the parish of Isola d'Asti. Following traditional fermentation, the wine matures for 12 months in barriques, followed by a short duration of maturing in bottles.

Our tasting note

The Barbera d'Asti has a deep, dark and intensive colour. Its nose takes one by surprise with hints of spices such as cinnamon and vanilla, as well as plums and blackberry. The Barbera d'Asti is soft, juicy and comes alive on the pallet with a taste similar to blackberry jam, good integrated wood and long-lasting finish.

Grapes 100% Barbera

Winemaking

The Barbera Bramé originates from an old Cru vineyard in the parish of Castellinaldo, which faces in a south- westerly direction. Following the traditional fermentation for 7 days at 28 °C, the wine matures in used barriques - which makes up 20 percent - and otherwise in large oak barrels.

Our tasting note

The Barbera Bramé captures the imagination with its rich ruby-red colour and violet reflection. It has an aroma typical for this type of wine, an aroma of cherries and vanilla. On the palate it is structured and pleasantly fresh in taste. A vine that produced soft and juicy grapes with a remarkable richness.

Grapes 100% Barbera

Winemaking

This Barbera is derived from 25 year old vines from the "Vigna Martina" vineyard. Fermentation in steel tanks at a controlled temperature and daily pumping is followed by maturation in French oak barriques. The barriques used are 50% old and 50% new. At least 8 months of bottle-ageing follow.

Our tasting note

Lively ruby red. Fruity aromas of black cherry, cranberry and plum in the nose. Infinitely creamy and balanced on the palate. Powerful fruity aromas of sour cherry and a touch of pomegranate dominate, which are harmoniously enhanced by the wooden finish. Concentrated long-lasting finale.

Grapes 100% Barbera

Winemaking

The grapes originate from the vineyards of the municipality of Isola d'Asti in the Frazione Mongovone. The grapes are gently harvested by hand. After pressing, the grape must ferments in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks before the wine is aged for four months in large wooden barrels and french barriques.

Our tasting note

A wine that highlights the fruity and opulent Barbera notes. On the nose, it delights with clear aromas of cherry, blackcurrant, violet, chocolate and tobacco. On the palate it delivers what the nose promises; flavours of cherry, redcurrant and dark chocolate, soft and juicy. The finish is long-lasting with cherry compote, dark chocolate and a hint of pepper.

Our tasting note

Intense ruby red with violet highlights. Inviting red fruit aromas of wild strawberry and cherry in the nose. Spicy notes of pink pepper and nutmeg accompany this. Plenty of fruit and aromas of coffee, some chocolate and a touch of graphite on the palate. Powerful, lingering after-taste.
