Product information "Viti Centenarie Barbera DOCG superiore"

The highest expression of Barbera, “Viti Centenarie” is obtained from very old vines that yield small and loose bunches, ideal for the production of opulent and concentrated wines. Intense, thick color, with deep ruby reflections. The nose offers rich and powerful aromas of ripe fruit, black cherry and plum jam, which blend well with floral notes of rose, violet and toasted and balsamic hints given by its aging in wood. It is wholly elegant in the mouth, endowed with an exceptional persistence. A wine that can age very well for at least 10/15 years. Excellent with meat dishes and medium-aged cheeses.

Ferraris Agricola

The philosophy that has always accompanied my work is to be able to combine respect for nature, tradition and technology in order to always obtain the best possible result, investing time (and not only) in the search for the best"

The history of the Ferraris Agricola winery began when great-grandfather Luigi emigrated to America and found gold during the "Golden rush" in California. Thanks to his income, great-grandmother Teresa, who had remained in Italy, had the opportunity to make his dreams come true. In 1921 she bought the house, in Castagnole Monferrato, in Via al Castello, home of the first Ferraris winery. Two years later, grandfather Martino bought the "Casot", a rural farmhouse in the middle of a 40,000 square meter plot where today one of the most representative vineyards of the company stands. However, the production of wine remained a passion and never a job. Thus, for decades, the grapes were given to the town's Social Cooperative.
