Scarpa Casa Scarpa Barbera d’Asti DOCG

INTRODUCTION

The vineyards are located in an area largely made of clay, facing northeast. Grapes from this plot preserve nice levels of acidity, yielding wines suitable for short-term consumption. The harvest took place during the first two weeks of September. Fermentation and skin maceration lasted 7 days at 28-29°C in stainless steel tanks. Throughout this period, two pump-overs a day were carried out. This was followed by an ageing of 12 months in stainless tanks and an additional 6 months in bottle.

TASTING NOTE

A traditional Barbera d’Asti with great freshness and crispness, it is a dark purple in colour and fruity on the nose. Vivid and vibrant, it matches thousands of dishes from different cuisines and can age up to 3-4 years evolving on that marvellous acidity.
