Barbera d’Asti Classica D.O.C.G.

DOCG 13 % aged 6 months in oak barrels

It’s the classic Barbera d’Asti produced by “ Fratelli Pavia” it’s with this wine that in the sixties and seventies Carlo and Giovanni were known as producers of high quality wines.

It is obtained with our best grapes and with a particular wine production technique, handed down from father to son: before being bottled it ages for 9 months in oak barrels of 50 hl. We would like that people that buy this wine know that it is produced exactly as they did many years ago when Carlo and Giovanni Pavia took the train from Agliano station directed to Milan with some wine samples in a bag and few cents in their pockets , money that had to be given back to their grandfather because their family had to live for the whole winter with it…
