Garboso

GARBOSO
Barbera i.g.t. (indicated geographic territory)



Our newest creation, Garboso is pure Barbera, with gentle structure and recognisable fleshiness. With a pleasant vibrant ruby shade, it is appealing for the clarity of its aromas and for its immediate appeal, but in harmony with its sister wines and from its evident capacity to "echo the terroir."

Color
Intense ruby red.

Aroma
Pleasantly fruity (very ripe prune, wild strawberry).

Taste

Full, round, of excellent drinkability, simple with a long gustatory-olfactory aftertaste.

To serve
The suggested serving temperature is 12-15°C. Pairs well with to first courses in general, white meat, red meat, and mildly aged cheeses.

Grape variety
100% Barbera . The product originates from historical vines of 1998, planted in 2002.

Terrior
5 hectares of predominantly sandy, clay-rich land to the east/southeast, situated at an altitude between 150 and 300 meters above sea level in Mairano di Casteggio and San Biagio di Casteggio.

Cultivation
Carried out in total absence of botritycides and synthetic products, with work on the land reduced to the minimum. In the training of new plants, during the planting of the vines, “actinobacteria” were used, natural fungi that protect the young roots from disease. The training system is Guyot, that guarantees the most uniform quality. Yield per hectare: 8000 kilograms of grapes, on an average of 5000 grapevines.

Harvest
Hand-picked, with meticulous selection of bunches. During the harvest phase, dry ice is used to protect the grapes from oxidation and to prevent an increase in temperature.
Vinification
The maceration lasts 5 days, at a maximum temperature of 28°, with the aid of frequent remontage in the first 3 days.

Fining
When malolactic fermentation has taken place, the wine is fined in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 15°, for a duration of 12 months.

Bottling
Carried out with maximum protection against oxygenation to retard the natural ageing process.

Storage
Kept in a special temperature-controlled storeroom, at a constant temperature of 15°C.
