BARCARATO GUASTI CLEMENTE BARBERA D'ASTI SUPERIORE 2011
2011 BARCARATO BARBERA D'ASTI SUPERIORE NIZZA D.O.C.G
Species of grapes: 100% Barbera
Production area: own vineyards, in the commune of Nizza Monferrato. Even before harvest-time, in the oldest vineyards are chosen those grapes that are fully ripe, these are then crefully picked and vinified separately. There follows a period of aging in oak barriques (small casks with a capacity of 225 litres) which lasts as long as is necessary to bestow an aura of nobility upon a wine that was already born to greatness. After which, before being shipped off for sale, Barcarato remains in the bottle for a further eight months.
Organoleptic characteristics: Very bright ruby-red colour. Harmonious, intense and resolute
bouquet, with hints of violets. It has a full and satisfying taste, just tannic enough for the calibrate time the wine remains in the casks, robust in character and tenor; when imbibed, its many pleasant aromas are released
To pair with: The usual range of food for a hightclass Barbera: red meat and substantial second courses, but it also has what it takes to be sipped contemplatively.
Recommended serving temperature:18-22 °C.
Alcohol Percentage: 14.5%
