In the glass, the Barbera D’Asti “Stella Rossa” shows a bright purple-red. It has a winy bouquet, with scents of red fruits like cherries and marasca cherry, and a very delicate vanilla note. On the palate it is dry, full-bodied, structured, with the acidity typical of this variety. It’s persistent and the tannins are well balanced.
Stella Rossa spends its first 10 months of life maturing in Slavonian oak barrels and in French oak barriques. Thank to this ageing the wine receives a slight tannic note, which will slowly fade with the refinement in the bottle. This Barbera d’Asti is a wine really easy to be drunk, smooth and pleasant on the palate.
This wine owns its name to the vineyards which surround our winery in Nizza Monferrato, that originally belonged to Stella farm.
