The SENZARADICI is the result of selected bunches of Barbera grapes from a very old vineyard to which our grandfather had always been devoted to, some vines now are more than 70 years old.
After a soft crushing, the grapes ferment at a controlled temperature, macerating on their skins for about 8 days. Once malolactic fermentation is completed, the wine then aged in small steel tanks for a couple of months.
The result is a young and fresh wine, vinified in a traditional way with the aim of enhancing the peculiarities of the fruit and the typical characteristics of the territory. Brilliant ruby red in colour, the nose is expressed with notes of ripe red fruit, blackberries and plums, and is delicately completed by floral notes of violet. The palate is warm, balanced and enveloping guided by an excellent acidic shoulder that persists on the final. A characteristic that we love, typical of the Barbera of our hills.

Grignolino is a red vine variety with a personality all of its own that we are proud to grow and vinify, our territory is one of the most renowned for the production of this native variety, considered the Prince of our hills.
The bunches harvested in the morning in the coolest hours are placed in small boxes and quickly transported to the cellar. A soft crushing follows and begins its fermentation in small steel tanks, then we carry out daily, delicate pumping over to extract the natural colour from the skins. Once the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation are completed, the wine is left to rest for a couple of months in steel tanks and several weeks in the bottle.
To the eye it offers a bright ruby red colour with orange nuances. The nose is dominated by notes of small red fruits, sage, chamomile flowers and dried fruit. In the mouth it shows direct, with a delicate tannic texture. The natural acidity of the grapes makes it a fresh, delicate and refined wine, the drink is easy and persuasive.
