WINEMAKING: The harvested grapes get destalked and soft-pressed. After that, we place them in steel vinificator machines for a cold maceration. The process, which lasts about 36/40 hours, favours the maximal extraction from the fruit of aromas, colour and structure. Then the Bricco Bonfante ages for a total of 20 months, the first 10 in new French oak barriques and the rest in 25hl French oak barrels. Before putting it on the market, the wine stays in the bottle in our cellar at a controlled temperature (12°C) for 12 months. TASTING NOTES: In the glass the Bricco Bonfante shows in a very intense purple-red, with violet reflections. In the nose it is a spectacle of aromas of ripe cherry and plum, with a slight wood note. On the palate it is impressive, extremely pulpy and has an exceptional fruit concentration. It’s very persistent, with a sweetness which slowly fades for a long and pleasant final. FOOD PAIRING: We recommend this Barbera d’Asti with complex meat dishes, like roastbeef, brasato, game, dishes enriched with white truffle or porcini mushrooms. Perfect with polenta and wild boar.
