Bera Langhe Nebbiolo
"The vineyard has been the heart of the philosophy at Bera since the first generation began tending the rolling hills of Neviglie just south of Barbaresco township in the 50’s. Now the estate owns just over 30 hectares of prime growing land around the communes of Neviglie, Neive and Barbaresco, with the incredible new addition of perhaps the most revered vineyard in all of Barbaresco; Rabaja. Whilst the estate’s flagship has always been their delicately fragrant and extremely energetic Moscato, today the younger generation – Riccardo and Umberto – look towards their future as custodians of some of Piedmont’s greatest areas for the production of very fine Nebbiolo. Vinification: when the grapes arrive at the winery, they are put through the destemmer and crusher and they are fermented for a week. At the end of malolactic fermentation, which is a second fermentation taking place after the alcoholic fermentation, the wine is left to age in cellar for at least 24 months in large barrels and then it is bottled."
"A garnet red colored wine with orange tinges, bright and absorbing. It has an ethereal and persistent fragrance that recalls violet and rose scents. It is dry, well structured, pleasantly savoury, with well integrated sweet tannins." - Winemakers Note
