TASTING NOTES

Color: An  intense and deep ruby ​​red, with light violet reflections.

Bouquet: The nose is intense and persistent, with clear hints of red fruits, such as ripe cherries and red currants. In the finish, slight notes of mountain herbs, minerals and smoky.

Taste: On the palate it reveals an intriguing fresh savory energy. A soft, warm and intense wine, with a slightly woody profile.

NOTE FROM THE WINE-MAKER

Good expression of pure Barbera   obtained from grapes selected and harvested by hand in the sun facing vineyards called “Braja”, located on  the Castle Estate.

Preserving  40% of the wine  in fine woods for 6/8 months softens the acidity and gives a balanced tannicity and persistence.

Its juiciness and sweetness make La Braja a particularly gastronomic wine, suitable for the whole meal or before sitting down at the table to whet your appetite.
