Daniele Ricci Barbarossa Barbera Colli Tortonesi 2019
In the cellar, Daniele ferments his wines in stainless steel and then continues their élevage in either steel or neutral barrels (untoasted acacia or oak). Daniele’s idea is to produce varietal wines that are representative of tradition and terroir while working as naturally as possible in both the vineyard and cellar. None of Ricci’s wines are filtered nor fined and contain very little sulfur. Daniele is quietly confident in this “less is more” philosophy and his son Mattia seems equally reassured about the future and sustainability of their azienda.
