This Barbera is from the “Ca del Buc” family “cru” in Castagnole Lanze. The vines are relatively young (25 years old) but the wine is already quite concentrated and full of character.

A touch racy with notes of game, this Barbera speaks of its origins in the Asti district as opposed to the more somber and elegant wines from the Alba zone. As with the Barbera d’Alba, this Barbera d’Asti is fermented in stainless steel for 10 days to two weeks and is racked into oak barrels and “botti” for 12 months before bottling.

The De Forville family emigrated to Piedmont from Belgium in 1848 and established themselves in the village of Barbaresco in 1860. Here, the family was instantly engaged in growing the Nebbiolo grape under the direction of Gioachino De Forville. Now, the fifth generation is in place.
