Fruity red wine with an elegant tannin for medium to long aging. The fermentation develops spontaneously in stainless steel vats, with no yeasts added, the maceration on the skins lasted about 14 days. Intense, pleasant and fruity characterized by a strong cherry scent and a fragrant bouquet of red fruit. Round, rich and soft.
At Podere Barbi their grapes are picked by hand because this is the only way to select the best fruit and they are pressed within the next hour thanks to the proximity of the vineyards to their cellars.
The stalks are removed from the red grapes which are pressed and pumped peristatically into open vats for fermentation. The cap is plunged three times a day by hand. A constant control of the temperature is key to retain at the utmost the varietal character of the grapes.
They only partially mature their red wines in small oak barrels, housed in undeground caves where the malolactic process takes place. They believe that other red wines do not need wood and are therefore stored in stainless steel.
Naturally their red wines are peacefully refined in bottle for a few months.
