La Vecchia Posta 2016 "Languia" Barbera Colli Tortonesi DOC

The vines of La Vecchia Posta sit high in the Colli Tortonesi, in the village of Avolasca, amid the gentle foothills of the Ligurian Apennines. This terroir produces a barbera of unique brightness and perfume. As is traditional, Roberto blends his barbera with 5% croatina. The wine undergoes spontaneous fermentation on the skins for 10 days in stainless steel before being racked to complete malolactic large oak tonneaux. The wine spends an additional 6 months on the lees with light battonage before bottling with very little sulfur.
