Vinification

After destemming and crushing, alcoholic fermentation takes place with the addition of selected yeasts keeping the temperature constant at around 25 C°. During maceration, pumping over is done at regular intervals, thus favouring the contact of the skins with the must to increase the extraction of tannins, anthocyanins and the characteristic aromas of Barbera. The drawing off follows to separate the wine from the skins.

The protagonist of each label is an old vine with three branches: the trunk ideally symbolizes the family and the three branches represent the three generations that until now have carried on the farm with dedication, commitment and sacrifice.

Continuity is in fact the keyword that best reflects the significance of the brand; in fact, this is graphically depicted with 3 consecutive points that indicate the continuation of the family tradition.
