Pico Maccario Barbera d'Asti Tre Roveri 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

Pico Maccario is a Barbera specialist located in the town of Mombaruzzo in the heart of Piedmont’s Barbera d’Asti DOCG. Brothers Pico and Vitaliano created the Pico Maccario brand in 1997 following four generations of selling the family grapes to other producers. Purity and balance is the goal of every Pico Maccario wine.The town of Mombaruzzo is located about an hour’s drive southeast of Asti itself and is home to the Pico Maccario winery. Here, brothers Pico and Vitaliano Maccario own 70 contiguous hectares, a rarity in the region. 60 of the 70 hectares are dedicated to Barbera.Tre Roveri takes its name from three old oak trees found on the property and is a selection from some of the oldest vines on the estate. The designation superiore indicates a wine with slightly higher alcohol (minimum 12.5%). Tre Roveri is aged for 12 months in 500 L French tonneaux and 3500 L Slavonian “botti grandi” (large oak casks).Tasting NotesTre Roveri shows an intensity, depth and level of complexity that can only be achieved with old vines. Ripe red cherry fruit is accented with layers of wild herbs, leather and truffle. Wood aging lends flavors of cedar, sweet spices and tobacco. Moderate weight and gentle tannins make Tre Roveri a versatile wine for the table.- Winery Notes
