2014 Cascina Adelaide Barbera
Cascina Adelaide seems particularly adept, to us, at producing Barbera. We've carried them for many years now.
From the winery, something poetic and Italian:
They support and foster me.They encourage my dreams, and make me feel lucky.Thanks to their determination and sweetness, they are the new expression of being woman in Langhe hills today. I dedicate this intense and fresh wine to them, together with a kind and happy thought (Amabile Drocco).
PLACE OF ORIGIN
Vineyards located in the Preda cru area of Barolo municipality. l .20Ha, 6000 vine-stocks grown in a calcareous-clayey soil. Exposure: South-West.
The vines are Guyot grown with the countertrellis system of planting, and medium-short pruning.The vineyard has an average density of 5000 vine-stocks per hectare, and the production is reduced by the cluster thinning method.
The grapes are picked up when they are ripened and laid into small 20kg perforated boxes. If necessary, a strict cluster selection is made.The grapes are taken to the wine cellar and crushed within a few hours from the harvest. The fermentation, due to natural yeasts, takes place at the controlled temperature of about 28°C. The mare maceration, at the beginning, is on average of 80 hours with intense pumping over and wine pressing. The new wine is kept in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature to allow the subsequent spontaneous malolactic to take place.
Red ruby colour, wine feeling followed by green hay, blue plums and cherry hitting the nose and the palate. Awesome example of a young Barbera showing its balance between natural berries & acidity, volume.
