Mabel is obtained from the Barbera grapes of our hills, left on the vine until the optimal sugary maturation point is reached.
As the norms that regulate its production dictate, the Barbera d’Asti DOCG avails itself of the title of Superior also thanks to the aging time in wooden barrels. Already cuddled and pampered during winemaking, our Mabel, in fact, rests at least 12 months in tonneaux and barriques of French Oak coming from the Forests of Allier and Limousen.
With time, its taste and looks evolve: the color, from ruby red, will lose its intensity and turn garnet red; its intense and characteristic aroma will become more ethereal; the dry, rounded and full-bodied taste will grow with harmony and gracefulness; its acidity, ever so balanced as time passes by, that will favor the cleaning of the palate, and is the characteristic of the Barberas, will remain always and with no doubt well blended in and harmonic.
