Product Description

This comes from vines aged between 297 and 34 years, grown on a site with a southern exposure on calcareous soils, at an altitude of 300m. The fruit undergoes a week-long alcoholic fermentation in rotofermenters at a controlled temperature. Malolactic fermentation takes place in medium-toasted French oak (part new), where the wine is aged for 12 months. It's then transferred to stainless steel vats for six months before bottling, then rested in bottle for another two months prior to release.

The 2014 Barbera d'Asti Ca' di Pian is terrific, especially for a year that was so challenging for Barbera. Dark cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco, licorice and grilled herbs add shades of nuance, but it is the wine's overall balance that is most impressive. The 2014 is perhaps a touch slender. Otherwise, it is impeccable, not to mention tremendous value.
