Barbera from Pavia District IGT (Typical Geographic Indication)
“Il Pozzo” is produced by a vineyard, whose grapes are Barbera, located in San Damiano al Colle. The vineyard is on the hills exposed to the sun at an altitude that goes from 250 to 300 meters on the level of the sea.
It is produced only in good harvest.
Once pressed, the grapes are made fermented on the peels for about 25 days.
The wine is ripened in French oak barrel for 10 months, in vitrified cement tank for a year, in order to stabilize it naturally, without the use of clarifiers. It rests in bottle for a minimum of 6 months.
It’s ruby-red colored, with a big complexity and balance. It has wide scents with hints of marasca, coffee and cocoa. The tase is soft, with a lasting persistence.
