Barbera d'Asti DOCG Superiore "Costalunga" 2021 - Bersano

Write Bersano and read Barbera. Yes, the good one. The one that has always been produced in Monferrato and that was once considered a 'cheap' wine and that today, on the contrary, knows how to reach peaks of absolute excellence. Barbera d'Asti DOCG Costalunga is a fine example. In this case, the grapes come from the most vocated hills in the classic production area. Traditional ageing methods help maintain the vine's characteristics of freshness and typicality. Vinified in steel, after processing the wine rests for six months in large oak barrels. Then, after bottling, it matures for a few more months in the cellar. Only then is it really ready to go to market. Ready to give great satisfaction to enthusiasts and experts. Barbera, let us not forget, is the perfect wine to accompany any country snack. Excellent with cured meats and cheeses, it tastefully accompanies traditional Piedmontese pitti. Excellent with meat ravioli in broth or dry.

More than a century has passed since the Bersano company was founded. The precise date is 1907, as proudly recalled on the home page of the company website. We are in Nizza Monferrato, the heart of the Barbera d'Asti district. The real turning point, however, came only a few years later, in 1935, when Arturo Bersano, a rare man in terms of intelligence and culture, a lawyer by family pride and a vine grower by passion, took control of the Cantina, which until then had been a family-run business and only sold its wines regionally. His work was inspired by the motto 'if you want to drink well, buy a vineyard'. A philosophy that, like a true pioneer, he would follow for the rest of his life. So over time, Bersano and, after him, the Massimelli and Soave families, owners of the Casa Vinicola, consolidated an impressive farmstead. Here, without forgetting the strength of tradition, quality grapes are still produced from which typical wines of the region are made. Special attention has always been paid to the wood for ageing, a real asset for the company. Cantine Bersano, in fact, keep large oak casks and tonneaux where, thanks to the constant temperature and humidity, the wines mature slowly for years. Today Bersano is considered one of the most important wineries in Piedmont.
