The 2015 Barbera d'Alba Superiore sees fruit sourced from various vineyard sites. Barbera is planted on the lower parts of the same vineyard parcels that produce the estate's best Nebbiolo. The wine undergoes a light and non-intrusive winemaking approach with one year of neutral oak. The results are extremely polished, clean and generous. Dark fruit, plum and spice appear on the finish.
Chiara Boschis describes the 2013 vintage as having a double personality. It started off cool and the the growth cycle got off to a slow start. The second half of the season saw a faster acceleration that quickly compensated for the delays. The Cannubi cru is south-facing and is usually among the first vintages to ripen. It suffers most in the hot years, but performs beautifully in more temperate vintages like 2013 (that also had more moisture in the soils). Chiara was joined by her younger brother Giorgio in the winery in 2010.
