Intense and dense red color and with aromas of small berries, Barbanico is born from the union of three grape varieties: 60% Lagrein, 20% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Full-bodied and well-balanced wine.
Separate harvest for the three vines, as they have few different ripening periods. Soft destemming and vinification in small containers with daily punching down and delestage. Duration of maceration varies depending on the grape variety and vintage from 10 to 20 days. Malolactic fermentation carried out in barriques, followed by maturation and refinement in French barriques for 20 months. Bottled a few months after extraction from the barriques and the bottles lay horizontally in the cellar until the organoleptic picture is completed.
Red meats, game.
Since 1872 the BALTER family has owned the estate overlooking the city of Rovereto. The beautiful vineyard-garden of the BALTER family produced grapes to be sold to other wineries in the area until 1990. Then the turning point, Francesco, with his children Nicola and Barbara, built a cellar equipped with the most advanced technologies and underground, so as to protect the landscape and preserve the panorama offered by a large sixteenth-century Castelliere, owned by BALTER . From here on, the BALTER family brand begins to make itself known throughout Italy and, through the wines offered, to become a synonym of Trentino winemaking excellence. Initially the BALTER winery was focused on great red wines, with Cabernet Sauvignon in the lead, but then, thanks to Nicola's passion and entrepreneurial spirit, it soon specialized in the production of great Classic Method sparkling wines, becoming a prestigious name of the Trento Doc appellation. Today, if the production of still wines remains an important part of the cellar, the BALTER show off a range of unmissable sparkling wines, in which to rediscover all the charm of Trentino bubbles and mountain freshness.
