Agricola Gaia Barbera Brich Piemonte

€19.95
 
A collaboration between Fabrizio Iuli and Eric Narioo (Vino dio Anna, Les Caves de Pyrene) in hilly Monferrato region of Piedmont. The grapes for this Barbera come from the lieux-dit “La Tina”, belonging to Fabrizio’s family for generations, formerly part of their old winery. The vines are 30 years old plus, and had been abandoned for 15 years before Fabrizio took them back. The climate there is continental, the soils consist of mixed clay-limestone, mostly white calcareous, with some lime.

Description

Brich is a wonderful Barbera, grown on the hills of Montferrato in Piemonte. On the palate, the wine feels free and natural, fresh with crunchy black fruit, full-bodied and richly layered with juicy cherry and blueberry ending with elegant, earthy notes. Brich saw a short 12-hour maceration in concrerte vats, 70% destemmed, fermentation with native yeasts, aged in concrete vats for 9 months, neither fined nor filtered and a mere 2mg of SO2 added at bottling.
