Az. Agr. Osvaldo Barberis - Barbera D' Alba Bio Castella 2012 Ml. 750
Organic Red Wine/Red Wine/Wine/Red
We are a small family business located in one of the most beautiful areas of Langhe (Dogliani) suitable to vine, in particular to Dolcetto wine.
The farm covers an area of nine Hectares : seven hectares are devoted to Dolcetto, one to Nebbiolo of Alba and one to Barbera of Alba: the vines are on average about thirty years and they are placed in cavalcapoggio rows with traditional pruning; Guyot with high density of plants. These conditions support the whole biological management of the farm allowing us to produce sound and well ripe grapes without using chemical fertilizers or fungicides products . Also the farm rises Piemontese breed's beefs completing the cycle of the typical Langhe's farm.
The whole management of the vineyard is targeted to the respect of the plant and to the contained production that is exasperated by the thinning of bunches; this process makes the grapes more resistant from crittogame attacks and anticipates the aging. This process gives us the opportunity to harvest grapes rich of extracts.
In the winery a lot of attention is paid to the management of the various steps of the production and to the cleanliness of the room; these are essential conditions in order to produce wines that can best represent the territory of origin without defects or disharmony.
In order to give to the wine its peak, the products are not filtered before bottling and they have a low levels of sulphites; in this way they are able to express a pleasant and healthy drink.
