Planted to southeast facing slopes at 200 to 350 meters altitude on limestone soils composed mostly of white marl with very little clay, the Barbera “Pierin “ blends fruit from two neighboring vineyards and bears the name of the family associate who supplied much of the old vines fruit for this wine. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentations occur while the wine rests in stainless steel, followed by ageing in30-hectoliter casks for one year. The wine is bottled without fining or filtration. Its character is muscled and exuberant with a rustic shrug of its broad shoulders.
