The grapes for Rive Barbera are hand-picked, de-stemmed and crushed. The must is fermented in temperature controlled, stainless steel vats with pumping over four times a day. The wine is pressed just before dryness and then racked to a mixture of new (2/3) and one year old (1/3) French oak barriques, where it undergoes malo-lactic fermentation and is aged for 18 months. The wine is left to develop in bottle for 6 months before being released.
A deep ruby Barbera with vibrant aromas of black cherries and prunes with notes of chocolate and toasty oak. An abundance of wild blackberries, black cherries and a touch of spice show through on the palate, which has a rich, voluptuous texture balancing taught acidity and fine oak tannins.
Casseroles, game dishes, smoked gammon with onion mash, and mature cheeses.
