" The 2008 Barbera dAsti Superiore Nizza is a huge, exciting wine loaded with smoke, tar, licorice, crushed rocks and dark fruit. This is an intense, brooding style but all of the elements come together beautifully in the glass. Clean, saline notes frame the gorgeous finish. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023."

"The vineyard Nizza is situated near La Villa Bauda in Incisa Scapaccino. Altitude 175m. Vineyard planted in the 70s . Terroir is a mix of sand, lime and clay, but with an higher percentage of clay respect the Rocchetta Vineyard. More clay = more structure, colour and acidity. The vinification is the same for the 2 Barbera Superiore. Aging 18 month in barriques (225 L), tonneaux (500 L) and a final refining in 25hl barrels." ~ Winery notes
