Monchiero Carbone Barbera d'Alba Monbirone

MonBirone is the most celebrated hill in Canale, as it is home to the sanctuary dedicated to Our Lady of MonBirone, to whom the people of the town are very devoted.Our vineyards lie around the top of the hill facing east, south and west, enabling us to mitigate any variations in temperature which may occur between different vintages, and obtain a consistent standard of quality.The roots of our family’s wine-growing tradition are to be found in these vineyards, as it was here on this very hill, as long ago as 1918, where Tilde Valente purchased her first small plot, and planted the barbera vine which had already provided excellent results on its loamy-limy soil for centuries.And it is here that our very best barbera grapes are still grown to make Barbera d’Alba MonBirone.The harvest generally takes place during the first two weeks of October, and crushing is then followed by a traditional-style alcoholic fermentation lasting 15/20 days. After drawing off, the wine is transferred into small 225-litre barrels for the malolactic fermentation and a period of ageing that can last between 15 and 20 months. After bottling, the wine’s development is then completed in our cellars underground, where it stays for around 6 months prior to its release.
