Vietti 2016 Barbera d’Asti Tre Vigne
Enjoyabilityfactor 89 Rating
Grapes come from vineyards in Agliano d’Asti, some of which are the oldest vineyards used for the Cru 'La Crena'. The grapes undergo a cold pre-fermentation maceration for 96 hours. The must is kept for 16 days in stainless steel tanks and undergoes frequent pump-overs and “délestage.” Malolactic fermentation takes place in barriques, followed by contact with the lees for 6 months. At the end of the malolactic fermentation, the wine is moved into French oak barrels or Slovenian oak casks for 14 months, then into steel tanks 2 months before bottling. The wine is bottled unfiltered.
