This outstanding expression of the indigenous Barbera grape and of its production zone is a wine that retains an enviable freshness. It surprises us when it first encounters our palate, because it succeeds in reconciling two opposite elements: acidity and structure. It offers an impeccable expression of the terroir of the Asti area, with its concentrated red fruit (especially cherries) but also leather and a faint gaminess. Masaréj, a red of outstanding fi nesse, matures for almost two years in barrel and then in bottle.

Compact ruby.

The nose reveals intense aromas of violets and peonies, then plums and cherries, inviting black pepper spice and cardamom.

Solid, structured in the mouth, markedly by an important caloric support, balanced by freshness and elegant tannins.
