Agostino Pavia Barbera d'Asti Blina 2017
The Pavia brothers are great exponents of the Barbera grape.
“Blina” is 100% Barbera from low yielding vines .
The manual harvest took place at the end of September followed by maceration and temperature controlled fermentation in steel. This was followed by a further 12 months ageing in steel prior to bottling.
Bright ruby red in appearance with marked purple highlights. The bouquet is intense, full and rich with scents of plum, raspberry and spice. The palate is well-strctured and smooth, with an elegant silky texture that makes the wine fresh and very approachable. Well-balanced acidity and tannins are followed by a long finish characterised by flavours of spices and red fruit.
