The land, the vine, the skilful work of man and the fortune of one to have in their mind a gift and patience to make a great wine that is expressed by its special characteristics: a garnet colour with beautiful intensity and delicate hues that remind one of rubies: ample and intense scents of exotic fruit (apricot), dried flowers and jam of red fruits and elegant spicy notes like pink peppercorns, cinnamon and tobacco. The taste is dry, full, warm and persistent, with a decisive note of harmony and velvet.

The grape harvest is done manually and with careful selection of the grapes. After crushing and removal of the stems, the juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks with a long maceration (18-20 days): In the mass there is a immersed cap that is enhanced by periodic pumpovers to improve and stabilize the colour of the wine and extract a width of olfactory scents and characteristics. The fermentation temperature remains below 28-30° C.

At the end of the tumultuous fermentation, the racking is done. Thus, the new wine begins its maturation process, spending the first 12 months in Slavonian oak barrels from 50 hectolitres and the next 6 into smaller containers of wood, 20 hectolitres.

After almost two years of wine making, in the summer of the second year after harvest, Barbaresco “Rio Sordo” is bottled. The darkness, the silence and the almost constant temperature of the cellar helps the wine to mature gracefully in the bottle and develop the first traits of refinement: it remains at least 7-8 months in the cellar before heading to the market.
