Le Masche Barbera d'Asti Superiore DOCG
100% Barbera Deep ruby red with shades of purple. Hand harvested fruit is destemmed and then crushed by basket press into stainless steel tanks, where it remains in contact with the skins for 10 days while native fermentation occurs. Following spontaneous malolactic fermaentation, the wine ages for a minimum of 12 months in neutral oak prior to bottling and release. Intense and fragrant, dominated by red cherrry, black plum and blackberry against a backdro of licorice and mature rose with a delicate balsamic undertone. Medium bodied wine marries freshness and elegance resulting in an uncommonly complex Barbera bottling with a gentle finish. Ranks among the very most versatile Italian red grape varieties. Lush fruit, bright acidity and low tannin make for an easy pairing with a wide variety of dishes and cuisine. This bottling complements everything from pizza and pasta to roast chicken & Korean barbeque.
