Description

Variety:
Barbera

Winery Intro:
This selection of Barbera is called “Pre-Phylloxera” because it is the only Barbera d’Alba DOC produced from ungrafted vines of Barbera. The wine is a unique and exclusive product — to taste this wine is to discover the original characteristics of the indigenous Barbera grape. The vineyard was planted more than 120 years ago, before the arrival of Phylloxera in Langhe, and has survived due to the sandy soil in this location, which Phylloxera, a root-feeding aphid, cannot abide. The vines come from pre-grafted plants and are propagated by cuttings.

Viticulture
Vine Age: 120+ years
Soil: Very rich in sand, which is a natural protection from Phylloxera attacks (originally Phylloxera vitifolii, now officially Dactylasphaera vitifoliae)
Elevation: 520 meters (1,706 feet)

Aging:
1 year in used, 25-hectoliter (660-gallon) Slavonian oak

Tasting Note:
A bright, rich ruby color with intense purplish highlights. The aroma is enveloping, aromatic and deep, with noticeable spices on first impact and raspberry, strawberry and ripe cherry notes, finishing with pleasant harmonies of wild flowers. On the palate it is well- structured and fresh; the acidity is excellently balanced, the tannin characteristic is embracing and the flavors remind one of sour cherries, blackberries and prunes.
