Made from the grapes grown in the vineyards of Monforte d’Alba in Rinaldi, from which the wine gets its name, this Barbera has a distinct and powerful character, yet retains a pleasant freshness that gives it great drinkability.
With a notable strength to its taste, this wine has a great acidic “backbone” that guarantees a pleasant, easy drink. The time spent in oak barrels rounds out the palate and gives it pleasing, balanced tannins. It drinks well young, yet also has potential to age well for several years in the bottle. Serve between 16-18°C (61-64° F).
Crushing-destemming is followed by spontaneous alcoholic fermentation using indigenous yeasts. It is left in contact with the skins in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature, followed by dry racking and cold decantation with transfer to oak barrels. It is stabilized with cold temperatures in order to avoid the use of clarifying products at the end of the process.
