Article: 2015 Barbera d'Asti Menego DOCG Superior Piemont M.Bonfante
Country: Italy
Growing area: Piedmont
Category: Red wine
Classification: DOCG
Producer: Marco Bonfante S.r.l.
Grape variety: 100% Barbera
Description: Intense purple-red in the glass. In the nose intense scents of cherry, blueberry and marasca cherry, with a slight wood note due to the ageing in French barriques. With the long refinement in the bottle it will develop aromas of coffee and cocoa. On the palate it is structured, velvety with a slight tannic note. The great balance between acidity, body and alcohol makes this Barbera a wine which can be stored for a long time.
Alcohol: 14.5%
Residual sugar: 2.1 g/l
Acid: 6.16 g/l
Drinking temperature: 16° - 18 °C
Drink recommendation: With typical dishes of the Piedmont tradition like the tajarin with boar meat ragout, veal "stracotto" with Barbera, braised meat, game and ripened cheeses.

Vinification: The harvested grapes get destemmed and soft-pressed. A cold maceration is carried out for 36- 40 hours to reach a greater extraction of flavours, colour and structure from the fruit. Then the Menego ages 12-15 months in used French oak barriques. Before putting it on the market, the wine stays in the bottle in the cellar at controlled temperature (12°C) for 12 months.

Allergens: Sulphites
