Piemonte DOC Barbera Largé

Biodynamic Piedmontese White Wine

The selection of the best vines from the local oldest vineyards. This wine is produced only in exceptional vintages. It is refined in barriques for 20 months and can age in the bottle for over 10 years.

The soil

La Raia’ soil dedicated to Barbera vine farming is marly, calcareous and extends at approximately 380 metres above sea level, positioned south-south west. The vineyards, raised with the Guyot method, has a density of 4500 vines per hectare. A grapevine mass selection has been created for this implant: thousands of shoots have been grafted, accurately choosing the best vines from the most ancient vineyards of the area. No fertilizers or chemical products are used for farming.


This wine is produced only in exceptional vintages. When the Barbera grapes are perfect and analysis show the physic and organoleptic characteristics for the production of a great wine.

Wine making

Around mid-October grapes are handpicked and put in crates to be brought into the cellar; the bunches are then selected one by one, removing those unsuitable. After the destemmer-pressing, the must begins its fermentation with natural lees and on the skin. The following day pumpovers start to extract colour and aroma. The alcoholic fermentation continues slowly for 15 days, then the must is left for another 10 days in contact with its own skins. Racking, i.e. the sepa- ration of the liquid from the skins, follows. The wine is kept at a temperature of 20° C for about one month, to favour the malolactic fermentation. After some decanting necessary to make the product clearer, the wine is refined in barriques. It is then bottled after about 20 months.
