The cultivation in the valley of “Altotevere” of this kind of grape dates back to 19th century. Probably it comes from populations from the nord-west, came to live in this valley. It had been cultivated in the cold hills in the north of Umbria, where the production was good for wine ready to drink. It is a fine and delicate wine, fragrant, full-bodied, and with important tannin.
The Barbera grape is harvested on slightly advanced maturation. It helps to have a good concentration of polyphenols by the intensity of the color, always with freshness and acidity.
By its force and our soil we must do the thinning of bunches during the summer. It comes from a maceration on steel on the noble lees. It ages on Slavonian oak barrels for a period of 12 months. Than it rests on bottles for another 6 months.
