The grapes are picked by hand and brought to the cellars as soon as possible where they are pressed. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature in thermo-conditioned tanks. Maceration lasts 9 days at a temperature of 28 degrees, followed by fermentation. Once this is complete, the wine is transferred to cement barrels lined with fiberglass and insulated by cork to maintain the secondary fermentation temperature of 20 degrees for a longer period of time. In this way, the malolactic fermentation starts spontaneously. The ten-month aging in small, lightly toasted French oak barrels ensures that the wine has a perfect balance between tannins, acidity and alcohol. The oak gives a soft touch of wood to the wine in addition to the other aromas and flavors. No predominant taste, instead they all merge into one unique, pleasant taste. Maturation takes place 2 years after harvest and reaches its peak condition between 2 and 5 years old.
Peiragal is a hill located in the Barolo area. Peiragal is an old word in dialect meaning gently sloping hills composed of very compact argillaceous limestone and large stones. This type of soil limits the amount of rainwater that is absorbed, causing the roots to grow deep in search of moisture, which then rises from the lower layers by capillary action. As a result, the vine produces loosely packed bunches of berries and as a result a wine with a high structure, moderate acidity and a balanced alcohol content with subdued, delicate tannins.
Barbera Peiragal, it’s perfect for every occasion. It goes well with typical appetizers of Langhe, veal with tuna sauce and vegetable flan, pasta with rich sauces and meat boiled or roasted, but also extremely elates the traditional soups. It well combines with moderately mature cheeses.
Marchesi di Barolo Barbera d'Alba Peiragal is a delicious Italian red wine from the Piedmont region. This wine is made by winery Marchesi di Barolo from Barbera grapes.
The cellars of Marchesi di Barolo are located in the village of Barolo, with views over the castle of Marquis Falletti. At the beginning of the 19th century, he laid the foundation for the now world-famous Barolo wines. The building where the winery is now located once belonged to Marquis Falletti. After the death of the last descendant Falletti in 1864, the work was continued by the charity Opera Pia Barolo. In 1895, Pietro Abbona began working in the wine cellars and through his persistence, knowledge and skills, he created the Marchesi di Barolo wine company and eventually made the wine cellars, vineyards and La Volta castle family property for the Abbona's.
