Burzi 2018 'Plaustra' Barbera d'Alba, Piemonte, Italy

Alberto Burzi and his sister Caterina are the first to turn the fruit their family has grown for generations into superlative wines bottled under their own name. The energetic siblings are farming organically in the vineyards surrounding their home in the village of Santa Maria, and since their first vintage in 2012 have been creating small, standout productions. 

Winemaker: Alberto Burzi

Variety: Barbera

Farming: Organic

Terroir: Santa Maria in La Morra, on the hillside historically known as Plaustra. With western exposition, the vineyard was planted only in 2008. It’s a high-density plantation, 8,000 stump/Ha, in order to reduce the production of every grapevine for a better ripening.

Vinification: Maceration at controlled temperature is carried out for 6 days with daily and manual pumping over. The alcoholic fermentation reaches 28 °C, preserving the perfumed aromas. The malolactic fermentation and the aging are done in steel tanks, where battonage is used to achieve a full and round body in opposition with the typical freshness of the Barbera.

Tasting Notes: Medium bodied with delicious herbal and brambly notes, this wine can satisfy nearly anyone at the table. Aromas of black plums, red licorice, gravel and pomegranate juice give way to hints of bitter chocolate and pressed thyme.
