Negar is the fruit of our love for the terroir: a still, important gutturnio made like our family did once upon a time
Type: Gutturnio fermo DOC
Varietal: Barbera 60% – Bonarda 40%
Barbera (traditional): Medium cluster of piramidal shape, tends to be compact, winged (150-200 gr). Medium berry, ellipsoidal; skin covered with a slight powdery veil, intense blue colour, thin but consistent.
Bonarda (traditional): Small cone-shaped cluster, very slightly winged, irregular and loose-packed (150-250 gr); Small berry, round, very sweet; skin covered with a slight powdery veil, often rather tough, slightly tannic, black colour.
Vinification: grapes are harvested late in 15 kg boxes where they rest two weeks before vinification. Vinification is made with native yeasts in cement tanks without temperature control.
Aging: the wine rests in steel tanks during two winters.
Color: the dark red color of this wine gives the name to the wine self in a dialectal form.
