The 2010 Barbera d'Asti Superiore Chersì is a dark and supple wine with thick tones of ripe fruit followed by chewy spice, tar and maple syrup. The wine is extracted and rich and the grape's natural acidity has been greatly soften in this modern expression. Soft fruit wraps thickly over the palate.

Winery Notes: Chersì, ‘developed’ or ‘matured’ in Piedmontese dialect, is made from selected fruit sourced from the estate’s original two hectare vineyard in Cascina Polsino which surrounds the Ca’ Bianca property. Vines have been planted at high density—4,500 plants/ hectare—are Guyot-trained and are low yielding, around 38 hl/ha. Vineyards have loose soils of sedimentary marl, clay and limestone, situated on east-facing slopes sited at 350 meters elevation. The fruit is vinified in stainless steel then aged for 12 months in Allier barriques with medium toast.
