The grapes are harvested when they are completely ripe and are then immediately processed. Destemming is followed by fermentation with skin contact, which is continued until the correct extraction of polyphenolic substances and aromas is achieved. Once it is drawn off the lees, the new wine rests in stainless steel vats until the following spring, when it is bottled. 

In the glass, it has a beautiful lively, deep ruby-red colour. The nose is refreshing, showing typical aromas of of ripe red fruit, marasca cherries and ripe red flowers. On the palate, it is dry, still, full-bodied and well-orchestrated. The palate confirms the nose. As it ages in the bottle, it increases its olfactory complexity, highlighting spicy and dried fruit overtones. Full-bodied with a nice tannic weave.

Barbera is excellent paired with cold meat starters, soups and tasty pastas, game, red meats, roasted meats and piquant or hard cheeses.

The grapes are destemmed, pressed softly and fermented with skin contact at a controlled temperature and fermentation is stopped before the total conversion of the natural sugars into alcohol. This is followed by second fermentation in a pressurised vat to add sparkle to the wine. 

A ruby-coloured wine with purplish hues. The nose shows a grapey aroma, with intense scents of red and dark fruit. On the palate, it has good structure, pleasant tannic texture and it can age well. It is produced in the sparkling version, according to the tradition of the territory. It is a rather rustic, full-bodied, well-structured wine that is widely appreciated as it can easily be paired with typical dishes of the local cuisine.

It pairs perfectly with the traditional Oltrepò cuisine: cold meat starters, risotto with sausage, mixed boiled meat, boiled capon, cotechino, zampone, cassoeula, sausages and grilled spare ribs.

The grapes are destemmed, pressed softly and fermented with skins at a controlled temperature, until all the natural sugar of the grape has been converted into alcohol. The subsequent rackings, from October to March, favour the natural decantation of the lees. Storage in stainless steel containers.

It is a beautiful deep ruby-red, with purple highlights in the glass. The nose is fruity and youthful, with hints, in particular, of blackberries, cherries and blueberries, finishing with floral nuances of violet and subtle mint notes. On the palate, it is supple, racy, fresh-tasting, slightly tannic and medium-bodied.

Pinot Nero pairs perfectly with meat dishes, roast duck or lamb, cheeses, risottos, mushroom- and truffle-based dishes. It is also excellent to accompany fish soups and strongly flavoured fish.
