La Spinetta Barbera di asti Ca di Pian 2008

£21.49

 TASTING NOTE

The Barbera d'Asti Ca' di Pian is a very upfront wine which currently shows a very balanced use of barrique. Ten months ageing succeeds in smoothing out any harsh acidity with the vanilla sweetness of new wood, without compromising the rich, red fruit.  This is excellent served with roasted red and white meats, and strong cheeses.  Specific pairs might include: penne with stir-fried beef and red bell pepper, provencal lamb with Mediterranean vegetables, pistachio-crusted pork with plum sauce and fried leeks or spiced venison steaks with red-cabbage confit and red-wine sauce.

The grapes are harvested and vinified mis September. Maceration and fermentation lasts 6-7 days in temperature controlled horizontal tanks. Malolactic fermentation takes place in 1year old barrels and matured for a period of 12 months. Racking takes place several times to clirify the wine. Fining and filtration are not performed on the wine. Once bottled the wine is allowd to rest for 2 months before being released.
