Villa Giada Barbera D'Asti Superiore La Quercia
Barbera d'Asti Superiore DOCG
Villa Giada Barbera 'Quercia' is a wine named after an old oak tree that stands in the vineyard. This is made from the best grapes from the Agliano vineyard. Fermentation lasts three weeks in steel vats where the wine also goes through a malolactic fermentation after which it rests before being transferred to the traditional 7hl (7000 ltr) barrels where it languishes for just under a year. This is a typical recipe of the area which Andrea has pretty much perfected (in my opinion).
Fragrant berry, pepper and herb aromas, it was a lovely vintage in Canelli: the balance is lovely, the fruit dark cherry. 14.5%
