The Barbera Appassimento from Ricossa in the Italian wine-growing region of DOC Piemonte is a finesse-rich, pure and balanced red wine.
This wine is a magnificent garnet red in the glass. This red wine unfolds its multi-layered bouquet with aromas of berries, vanilla and figs. These fruity notes are rounded off with floral hints of lilies and delicate smoky notes. This Piedmontese seduces the palate with its soft, sweet taste and pleasant acidity. The supple tannins give this wine its wonderful structure and lead into the long finish.
Vinification of the Ricossa Barbera Appassimento
The grapes for this single-varietal Barbera from Piedmont are harvested by hand and then dried for around four to six weeks. The subsequent maceration takes place over a period of 10 to 12 days in stainless steel tanks. Ageing takes place in barriques for 6 months with a two-month refinement in the bottle.
