"I Tre Vescovi" Barbera d'Asti Superiore D.O.C.G. 2017
Red wine from Italy
After the first selection for "Barbera Vigne Vecchie" grapes, the remaining grapes with higher sugar-content are used to make the "Barbera d''Asti Superiore". The name "Superiore" (superior) is only given if wine meets high quality standards: grapes must have a natural higher sugar-content and wine must be aged for twelve months, six of which in oak barrels. Thanks to its characteristics, Barbera is suitable for ageing in barrels. This "Superiore" is aged in oak barrels during a space of time (at least, six months) which varies according to recurrent wine-tastings. Barrel ageing makes this wine unalterable in time. It has a ruby- red color with orange overtones and an excellent body. It has a strong bouquet of dried fruits and slightly "boisé" (woody flavor). Its taste is dry and long-lasting.

BARBERA is a red grape variety from Piedmont in northwestern Italy and a high quality grape. It is one of the most important and common Italian varietals. The Barbera was already famous in the 13th century. Even then, the still significant growing region Monferrato was famous for this variety. The wines are considered powerful, with pronounced plum flavors, low tannin with full "body" and a deep-ruby color.
