A Barbera d'Asti Bandita... Therefore, 100% Barbera, a popular grape variety in Northern Italy. A cuvée blended from the 2016 and 2019 vintages, made from vines farmed organically and planted on sandy soils. Vinification: the grapes are handpicked with small crates and sorted in the vineyard, followed by fermentation with indigenous yeasts in concrete vats, two months of maceration, gentle pressing, and maturation in Slovenian oak barrels. No fining, no filtering, and no sulphur!
