||Altitude: 300-350 m. a.s.l. Exposure: East and South-West.
|Composition of the land
||The soils are rich in clay and calcareous marl.
||The fermentation traditionally takes place in stainless stee tanks at controlled temperature with frequent pumping over of the must to optimise the extraction of tannins and colour. The maceration lasts 12-15 days.
||The Mirafiore Barbera d’Alba Superiore ages in big and medium size oak barrels (20 - 140 hl), in which the malolactic fermentation takes place before the end of the winter. The wine stays in wood for one year, and then is bottled before further ageing in the cellars for six months.
||Perfect with pasta, meat dishes, fresh and medium aged cheeses.
