Rive Barbera d’Asti Superiore 2017, Il Cascionone

Italy / Piedmont

Andy's Tasting Notes

Consistently one of the best price to quality Barbera wines which we have stocked now for quite a few years.  Luxurious, rich and rounded with a glossy and satisfying persona.

Highly recommended.   A satisfying Barbera of real distinction.

A deep ruby Barbera with vibrant aromas of black cherries and prunes with notes of chocolate and toasty oak. An abundance of wild blackberries, black cherries and a touch of spice show through on the palate, which has a rich, voluptuous texture balancing taught acidity and fine oak tannins.

Production notes – The grapes for Rive Barbera are hand-picked, de-stemmed and crushed. The must is fermented in  temperature controlled, stainless steel vats with pumping over four times a day. The wine is pressed  just before dryness and then racked to a mixture of new (2/3) and one year old (1/3) French oak  barriques, where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and is aged for 18 months. The wine is left to  develop in bottle for 6 months before being released.
