With this wine we want to enhance the peculiarities of Barbera which are concentration, freshness, elegance, longevity. It is a style of our own to interpret Barbera. Selected vineyards, low yields and oak ageing are the key factors that contribute to make this wine up to the standards of the Superior appellative.
