Alfiera

Barbera d’Asti

DOCG Superiore

Alfiera is a well structured and elegant wine made exclusively from Barbera grapes, that takes its name from a 4,5 hectare historical vineyard.

IN THE VINEYARD

Clusters are thinned in the first half of August at the onset of ripening. Yield per vine 1 – 1.2 Kg. Grapes are hand-harvested in crates in the second half of September.

IN THE CELLAR

Selection and inspection of the grapes on the sorting table is followed by gentle destemming and crushing. Skins are fermented in a stainless steel tank at a temperature of 28 – 30 °C (82 – 86 °F) for 15 – 20 days, with delestage (rack and return), and pumping over. Malolactic fermentation present in wood with batonnage (hand stirring).

PRODUCTIONS

The number of bottles produced depends on the characteristics and peculiarities of each single harvest.

FORMATS

It has intense, complex bouquet of ripe cherries, wild berries, and plums with vanilla and cocoa notes. Full flavoured, well-structured and smooth, with a long, fruity finish. Complexity increases with 2 – 3 years of bottle ageing. Ages and continues to develop for over ten years from harvest.
