Product Description

"This comes from the Cascina Pe Mol, Merli and Rocche di San Niccolo vineyards, which, at between 1200-1500 feet, are some of the highest vineyards in the region. The vines are planted at a high density of 5000 vines per hectare and are cropped at 50hl/ht. One kilogram per vine is an extremely low yield for any variety let alone Barbera and this crop load goes some way to explaining the remarkable quality and class on offer here. Luciano notes that Barbera loves heat and sun and typically does best in warm vintages such as 2003, 2009 and 2011. His 2013 Barbera is a rich, structured wine, full of deep red and black cherry fruit, perfectly married with this grape's invigorating acidity. The wine underwent malo in old tonneaux casks before 40 per cent of the blend was racked into new, bespoke oak barrels. Sandrone has special untoasted barrels made for this cuvée so as not to impose any charred wood characters onto the wine. Fans of well-structured, savoury, super pure Barbera will fall for this big time." - Importer's Note
