Brilliant Barbera with warm, spicy aromas of blueberries and plums, with subtle, smoky notes. The palate combines generous ripe fruit with lively acidity, juicy cherry characters and spicy notes beneath. Supple tannins offer an extra dimension to the texture.
Ceppi Storici comes from vineyards in the Monferrato hills in the south of the province of Asti, Piemonte. South West aspects at altitudes between 250 and 400m. Limestone-clay soil. The fruit was hand harvested in late September / early October from vines over 40 years old. Fermented in stainless steel tanks at 25-30° C. Pressed when dry and racked to stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation. The clear wine was then racked to a mixture of French oak barrels (50%) and large traditional Piemonte oak vats for 12 months maturation. These two components were then blended and bottled.
