The grapes come from the Cascina Penna vineyard, in Canale, an area which has always had a vocation for the cultivation of Barbera: three hectares which enjoy easterly exposure, with a big cherry tree right in the middle. Thanks to the fact that the grapes are not exposed fully to the sun, they are fresh, with a good acid content when harvested. This vineyard was planted in 1997, the year before we got married.
Bright ruby red.
Scents of ripe fruit, plum, blackberry and Marasca cherry.
Fragrant, fresh, good acidity, aftertaste of mixed berries and vanilla.
