GEMMA
Nizza D.O.C.G.

Nizza docg is produced from the finest Barbera vineyards located within the eighteen villages that surround Nizza Monferrato. Our Gemma is obtained from our best exposed vineyard in Agliano Terme.
The grapes, selected and picked by hand at the end of September, are crushed and left to ferment into stainless steel tanks at the temperature of 28°C for 15 days. 
After the alcoholic fermentation starts the malolactic fermentation, carried out in stainless steel tanks; at the end of this process the wine is ready to be racked in wooden barrels.
Our Nizza is aged 18 months in French oak tonneaux of five hundred litres. 
Perfect wine to accompany aged cheeses and meat dishes.
Ideal serving temperature: 18°C.
