In 1993 I produced a small amount of Barbera but it turned out to be enormously rich and concentrated and for the first time I had the chance to refine my wine in a new wooden barrel, it was a 3.5 hl by Gamba.
The raw material was so rich and tannic that I left the wine for 24 months in the barrel. L’attesa means “the wait”, and the name of this wine comes exactly from this long wait.
Acid, austere, long-lived beyond all my expectations, this wine obtained from pure Barbera requires a long refinement even in the bottle to express its best qualities, this is something that I have learned over the years.
For this reason to those who come to visit us or have a first approach with this wine I offer old bottles, to give the measure of the complexity and the duration of this wine that has become our symbol.
For a good tasting it is advisable to uncork at least a couple of hours before serving.
