Barbera d'Asti DOCG Superiore "Gaiana"

The “Gaiana” vineyard is located in Mombaruzzo on the right bank of the Belbo river at 150 m above sea level. The vineyards cover about 5 hectares of land, and they benefit from perfect sun exposure. The soil is limestone and clay. “Gaiana” is one of the most representative wines of Malgrà: its smooth flavor and elegance are enriched with its ample bouquet, which matures after 12 months of aging in wood. A wine with a full body, this Barbera is rich and warm.
