Oberto Barbera D'Alba .750L Piedmont Italy
EARN REWARD POINTS ON EVERY PURCHASE
Intense ruby-red turning to light purple hue, due to the ageing in barriques. The nose shows oaky notes well-integrated with hints of plum and cherry. Warm sensations in mouth thanks to its high alcohol content, with rich toasty notes of ripe fruit and jam. Sour and long finish due to its typical varietal acidity.
Harvesting of the ripe grapes in 20-kg perforated crates through a careful selection of the bunches; transfer in cellar, grape crushing and destemming within hours; themo-controlled fermentation at around 32 °C, with often and soft pumpovers. Medium-long maceration of the marcs (about 180 hours); racking in stainless steel vats, where the wine is themo-controlled and the natural malolactic fermentation takes place.
