Wine produced from organically-grown grapes.The term “organic agriculture” refers to farming practices that allow only substances naturally-occurring in nature for use as fertilisers and for protection against vineyard pests.
This Barbera is the first product of our organic viticulture programme. Organic farming means above all to work in harmony with nature and to constantly develop new practices that will produce flawless-quality fruit while at the same time diminishing impacts on the environment. When one does so, the vine’s own self-defensive properties are strengthened. Our viticulturist pays painstaking attention to each stage in the growth cycle, and reduces crop yield in order to increase grape quality.
All of our practices in the vineyard are carried out in accord with EU Law 2092/91 and with the ICEA (Institute for Environmental Ethics Certification) requirements.
The vineyards that yielded these organically-grown barbera grapes are located in the heart of the Asti zone. The vinification process followed is traditional, and the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and ageing in the bottle.
