The Mirafiore Barbera d’Alba Superiore ages in big and medium size oak barrels (20 - 140 hl), in which the malolactic fermentation takes place before the end of the winter. The wine stays in wood for one year, and then is bottled before further ageing in the cellars for six months.
The soil is the typical soil of Serralunga d’Alba, very rich in microele- ments, therefore these vineyards originate wines that express great character, with pronounced acidity and flavour. The colour is dark ruby-red with purple highlights; nose brimming over with leather, black liquorice, coffee and blackberry. This Barbera d’Alba starts out on the palate providing a warm feeling of volume and body, with the fruit blending marvellously with the soft tannins and the acidity, while its finish is long and savoury.
