STRADIVARIO VINEYARDS AT PIEVE DI COCCONATO

Stradivario, our Barbera Superiore, was born in our most important cru in Cocconato. Entirely facing south, Bricco della Pieve is an historical vineyard of Cocconato, old parish benefit, climbed on the slopes of a gentle hill, on where rises up the Romanesque little church called «Madonna della Neve». Here we have always grown our Barber vineyard, which since the ‘80s bears the name of the most famous violin of all, due to our passion for the music. Over the years Stradivario has proved to have a great longevity – a wine to taste today but to save for the years to come.

VINEYARD

Varietal: Barbera 100%
Vineyard: Bricco della Pieve, in Cocconato
Altitude: 350 metres a.s.l.
Soil: limestone with surface marls
Vine training technique: low spurred cordon

WINEMAKING

The maceration is relatively short but intense, with rising temperatures until the wine reaches the highest expression of its colour. After a slow and natural decanting process, the wine is trasferred into new barriques for 18 months and then bottled without being filtered.

WINE

Like all great wines, Barbera too has its own crus. In certain areas and vineyards where it reaches the highest of its expression, it rightfully deserves the name SUPERIOR. Stradivario, with its great character, is only produced during the best vintages (millesimi). It is a long-lasting wine with a potential of at least 15 years, always mantaining the fresh colour of its varietal. Full-bodied, intense ruby red in colour with purple hints and harmonious tannins. Black cherries, raspberries, candied apple, white pepper, prunes and blonde tobacco. Can be enjoyed after 5 years in the bottle and pairs nicely with the great Piedmontese cuisine and white truffle.
