BOVIO Barbera d'Alba 'Il Ciotto' 2016

The 2016 ‘Il Ciotto’ Barbera was sourced from the calcareous clay soils of La Morra, and fermented on the skins in steel for around 8-10 days at a controlled temperature prior to being aged in steel until bottling (no filtration). The result is a lovely Barbera, which opens to bright, inviting aromatics of cherries and raspberries woven together with earthy minerals and crushed violets all taking shape. Medium-bodied and silky, with excellent balance and poise, backed by a mineral driven core that expands through the finish. Overall, this is a delightful wine to drink now or cellar for another few years.
