This wine, typical of the local tradition, is made with Barbera, which gives a fresh acidity together with Croatina grapes, rich of vegetal tannins. These two grapes balance each other and soften the strong tunes of the single grapes.
Uva Rara subsequently harmonizes the wine, with its soft nature that blends and gives balance and finesse. Croatina and Uva Rara are two native grape varieties.
Croatina 40%, Barbera 40%, Uva Rara 20%
The grapes are de-stemmed, crushed, and put together with the skin in concrete vats for a maceration that can last 7 to 10 days, depending on the vintage. Several rakings at the end of fermentation, and few months to soften out.
In concrete vats for over 24 months.
