The best of Barbera d’Asti Superiore

Our Barbera d’Asti Superiore DOCG Sichivej is made from the best grapes of a fifty-year-old crus. Sichivej means “old vines” in Piedmontese.

This wine is the best example of the ductility of the Barbera vine, which, with the right management of the vineyard and scrupulous winemaking, is capable of producing a fine, long-lasting wine.

The grapes are harvested by hand and gently pressed. After the first fermentation and the malolactic fermentation, the wine, still veiled, is put into small wooden barrels with a special toasting. Bottling takes place in spring, without any filtration, to preserve the concentration and body acquired.

Sichivej, Barbera d’Asti Superiore DOCG, is aged from 12 to 15 months in oak barrels.
