Winemaking Notes: Sori del Drago Barbera d'Alba ferments spontaneously in stainless steel. It ages for 6-12 months in stainless steel tanks before being bottled unfiltered and unfined.
Tasting Notes: A wine of outstanding tension and energy from a top site in Castiglione Falletto, the Brovia family ages this wine in stainless steel to preserve its freshness and vivacity. While charming and outstanding in its youth, the wine gains in complexity and profundity with a few years in the cellar.
