VINIFICATION AND AGEING
Vinification is traditional, with a 15 day maceration on the skins and a 82 - 84° F fermentation, followed quickly by the onset of malolactic. The wine then matures for about 12 months in small oak, about 1/3 new; here, the wine, already impressively structured, acquires a multi-layered depth of flavour and character, evolving into a richly-nuanced Barbera of grace and expressiveness.
