Al di là del Fiume (Beyond The River): started in 2006 as the brainchild of husband and wife Danila Mongardi & Gabriele Monti. Their farm is located in the area in front of the Monte Sole Regional Park in Marzabotto, just outside of Bologna, Emilia Romagna. They created a multifunctional biodynamic agricultural organism with productive, educational, recreational, artistic and therapeutic activities aimed at the wellbeing of man and the environment. The farm consists of three hectares of vineyards, one hectare of vegetable garden, half a hectare of ancient fruits, one hectare of ancient cereals and half a hectare of traditional medicinal plants.
Barbera: 100% Barbera de-stemmed and macerated on skins for 20 days in stainless steel tank. After pressing the wine is aged in tank for 6 months. Bright joyful example of Barbera.
The color is deep purplish, the hints of wild red fruit such as currant, pomegranate and these very vinous notes, outline the unmistakable characters of this wine. The thick and fleshy skin of the grapes allows the tannins to be present in large quantities.
The result is a wine that combines the proud character of Barbera with the delicacy obtained from a soft vinification lasting about 20 days, made only with manual punching down.
