Description

Ascheri Barbaresco DOCG 2016

​Made of 100% Nebbiolo grapes. Ruby red with garnet highlights. Dried cherries and rose petals dominate the bouquet with undertones of violets, pomegranate, liquorice and vanilla. Raspberry and cherry flavours open the palate with treacle, fruit cake and truffle pecorino emerging belatedly. Rich flavours carry through a soft and velvety mouthfeel to close with a long, impressive finish.
The grapes are hand-picked and gently pressed. Fermentation in temperature regulated stainless steel vats for about 12 days at 28°C. Ages for a year in stainless steel and then 18 months in large Slavonian oak barrels (40% old and 60% new).
