In the glass, the San Cristoforo Barbaresco DOCG by Elio Filippino shimmers in a strong garnet red with orange highlights.
This pure red wine reveals expressive aromas of ripe raspberries and juicy grapes - accompanied by fine hints of dark chocolate and liquorice. On the palate, this Italian wine presents itself with an impressive elegance supported by a powerful body. The tannins are perfectly integrated and accompany in the long-lasting reverberation.
Vinification of Elio Filippino San Cristoforo Barbaresco
The Nebbiolo grapes are carefully picked by hand. Subsequently, the harvested material in Elio Filippino's wine cellar is carefully selected and mashed. The resulting mash is fermented in a large wooden barrel at a controlled temperature. This wine is then aged for a total of 24 months in large Slavonian oak wooden barrels.
