Description

Barbera d’Asti 2017 Alessandro Motta

Variety: Barbera 100%

Produced from a single vineyard in the municipality of Castel Rocchero in the province of Asti. The vineyards were planted in 1969 and are consequently almost 50 years old. The orientation of the vineyard is southeast.

Altitude is around 350 meters above sea level, while the soil is loamy and clayey, with sandy veins. The training system is a counter espalier with guyot pruning.

The harvest is done manually, and the grapes are harvested in boxes of 20 kg each. After destemming and soft pressing, alcoholic fermentation begins, conducted in stainless steel fermenters, at controlled temperature, for a period of 10-15 days. Frequent punching down and pumping over are carried out daily. Still in stainless steel, it carries out the malo-lactic transformation, and then refines for 6 months. Follows the bottling and a further rest in glass for another 8 months.

Barbera d’Asti 2017 Alessandro Motta

Intense purple red color.

The nose has exuberant and intense head aromas of ripe fresh fruit. By swirling the glass, ideas of shrub berries, eucalyptus, undergrowth and the first mentioned cherry, black cherry and plum are added. What is striking is the sharpness of the perfumes, their precision and the visual memory that immediately arrives in the mind.

On the palate it confirms the expectations. Form and Substance are shown in excellent expression, therefore the obvious acidity intrinsic to the vine is approached by the minerality extracted from very long roots of old plants. The creaminess of the glycerines is remarkable, which together with the heat of the alcoholic strength adequately compensates the hardness. After the smell, fresh fruit aromas and balsamic sensations still arrive. Persistent.

One of the best Barbera d‘Asti from “Acciaio” on the market.
