Le Ginestre Barbera D' Alba DOCG

Le Ginestre Barbera D' Alba DOCG

GROWING LOCATION: the vineyard faces south-southwest in the village of Monforte d’Alba, with vines trained on vertical trellises and pruned using the Guyot system. The particularly sun-blessed location and well-drained, marly soil bring out the very best in the barbera grapes grown on this vineyard.


WINE MAKING PROCESS: on the skins, with a submerged cap and daily pumping over of the must; continuation of the maceration for 10-15 days after the alcoholic fermentation; the drawing off and first rackings are followed by the malolactic fermentation and subsequent maturing in oak for a year; several months of aging in the bottle finally prepare the wine for its release.

TASTING NOTES: very intense, vivid garnet red, with slight purplish highlights; clean, expansive, intense nose, with hints of chocolate, cocoa, roses, and sweet tobacco; full, round, and very well-balanced on the mouth, with a long, spicy finish.

About the Producer

Azienda Agricola Le Ginestre is located in the municipality of Grinzane Cavour, about 6 km from Alba, in the Langhe hills of Piedmont, where the production of Barolo is part of the local history.

In the winery the wines are processed as little as possible while preserving the varietal characteristics to the maximum. The submerged cap vinification, used in the old times, provides the best extraction of the coloring and aromatic substances contained in the skins, favoring the tasty and long-lived Barolos.
