La Stoppa Barbera Della Stoppa 2010

$72.00 $62.00

100% Barbera. From 25-45-year-old estate vines on a slope on stony clay-limestone soils. The fruit is organically farmed and harvested by hand. It is destemmed and fermented with native yeasts and no sulfur in tank; maceration with the skins is for 30 days. The wine does not go through malolactic fermentation because the naturally low pH and high acidity level combine to prevent it naturally. The Barbera is the only La Stoppa wine to age in barrique, for one year in used barrels. It is bottled without filtration and aged in bottle for a minimum of 2 years before release.

Winery Profile:
They were founded in 1978 by Panteoni Family. Elena Panteoni, the present lady owner, is revolutionary, who has become a recognized mentor/leader in Italy for the artisanal production of wine. In 1996, they began using organic agriculture, and La Stoppa was certified organic in 2008. In the cellar, they took even more natural approach, using indigenous yeasts, long macerations on the skins, only a tiny amount of sulfites at bottling and no filtration. La Stoppa is the stalwart in the production of natural wines in Italy.
