La Solista

Barbera d'Asti

La Solista

This wine is obtained from the grapes of an estate vineyard in the village of Nizza Monferrato.

The wine making process used is the traditional one and the m lasts 8 days. After the alcoholic fermentation, the wine is kept at the ideal temperature of 23 °C to facilitate the malo-lactic fermentation.

In the month of July 2003 La Solista is bottled without any maturation in wood. For this reason, this is a fresh and ready wine that respects completely the traditional wine-making process of Piedmont.
