  • The Motta family, winemakers in Asti for over 200 years, produce and bottle something unique. Culled from the Ruleja vineyard's 60 year old vines, they ferment their Barbera on the skins for 2-3 weeks, then age it in barrique for a year, transferring it to giant 25hl Slavonian oak barrels before an extended pre-release rest in bottle, sometimes for decades. A remarkably rewarding effort.
