It is a Barbera del Monferrato Superiore DOCG fermented in wooden vats and then aged in 500-liter tonneaux. Following this, is the assembly with Freisa in a percentage not exceeding 15%.
The body and complexity of Barbera enriched by the spiced aromas of the wood integrate with the fruity raspberry of Freisa, creating a great wine with a harmonious and balanced body, underlined by the persistent finish.
