Dani is the vineyard behind Andrea’s home, near the village of Agliano Terme. It has excellent South-West exposure and produces the flagship wine of the estate, Bricco Dani Barbera d’Asti Superiore Nizza. A selection of the best grapes from the oldest vines are hand harvested and transported to the cellar using small baskets. After a careful de-stemming, the must is kept in contact with the skins, fermentation is in stainless steel vats at a constant temperature for a period of three to four weeks. The wine is kept in steel tanks until the malolactic fermentation is finished, it is held a little longer before being transferred to Allier tonneaux (500ltr barrique) where the wine is aged for between 12 and 14 months, depending on the vintage.
Production is 8000-9000 bottles.
