Grapes: Barbera (100%)

Colour: Intense purple-red with violet reflections

Nose: On the nose, the wine displays a spectacle of aromas of ripe cherry and plum, with a slight wood note

Mouth: On the palate it is impressive, extremely pulpy and has an exceptional fruit concentration. It’s very persistent, with a sweetness which slowly fades for a long and pleasant final

Soil: The soil is rich of calcareous clay marl. The microclimate is influenced of sea winds which favour the integrity and the ripening of the grapes

Vinification: The harvested grapes get destalked and soft-pressed. After that, we place them in steel vinificator machines for a cold maceration. The process, which lasts about 36/40 hours, favours the maximal extraction from the fruit of aromas, colour and structure. Then the Bricco Bonfante ages for a total of 20 months, the first 10 in new French oak barriques and the rest in 25hl French oak barrels

Enjoy together with: We recommend this wine with complex meat dishes, like roastbeef, brasato, game, dishes enriched with white truffle or porcini mushrooms. Perfect with polenta and wild boar
