The wine is inspired by a rare, old curio produced by Carlo - Carlin - Vaira, Aldo’s grandfather, from a vineyard planted with a majority of Barbera and a row of Freisa. It served family and friends with enough pride to deserve being bottled and labelled – a rare dignity for home-consumed wines in those days. 55% Barbera and 45% Freisa were co-fermented for 18 days, then racked in a stainless-steel vat until the end of the spontaneous malolactic conversion. The wine combines the charisma of both varieties, with the sophistication of Barbera and the savage allure of Freisa. The nose may present as subtle or flamboyant. But it’s the mouthfeel that really shows the magic of co-fermentation, with a lively and textured sensation, loads of flavours and alluring length.
