50 Vendemmie

BARBERA D’ASTI DOCG
It presents the best features of Barbera grapes that have been grown in over 50-year-old vineyards. The new version of the “50 Vendemmie” proposed by Cantina di Nizza immediately appears as fresh news both for the completely renewed graphic layout and for the refining materials, not more prestigious woods, but clay amphora. This type of processing was chosen because the clay is a container suitable for bringing out the variety of scents and in general the fruit, thanks to a microporous structure that allows a gaseous exchange with the outside.

This type of processing was chosen because the clay is a container suitable for bringing out the variety of scents and in general the fruit, thanks to a microporous structure that allows a gaseous exchange with the outside.
