Demeter certified Biodynamic. Nuova Cappelletta is an organic estate focused on quality wine making and vineyard management. The entire estate is certified for organic farming and meets the much stricter Demeter standards for biodynamic agriculture. The picture of the sun and cow horn on the label is a symbolic representations of biodynamic viticulture, as cow horns are used to draw in solar forces.

2006 is proving to be an outstanding vintage in the Piedmont, and this Barbera is no exception. Beautifully balanced with earthy, rustic tones and ripe Barbera fruit, the wine has well balanced acidity, notes of spice and leather, moderate tannins, and a juicy, food friendly personality. With a civilized 12.5% alcohol, it's perfect for summertime outdoor picnics and light, casual sipping. Especially good with fresh tomatoes.

Tasting notes
Color: Deep red with purple reflections.
Bouquet: Fresh, a classic varietal spiciness.
Taste: Hearty fruit flavors with a complex finish. Good tempered wine.

Review
Rich in biodiversity, cows are as much of a part of Nuova Cappelletta as the vineyards used to produce this energetic Barbera full of lively fruit and vibrant personality. Notes of spice and leather compliment the moderate tannins and juicy acidity. Demeter certified Biodyanamic for purity and authenticity. Bart Hopkins

Wine maker notes
This Barbera comes from the Rinalda and Collina vineyards, where the exposure and the soil allows for a medium bodied wine suited for a moderate ageing. The process allows for an alcoholic fermentation, followed by maceration, that may be extended, depending on the vintage. The wine is refined in steel tanks and big oak barrels for at least six months. The bottlement takes place during the first summer following the vintage and the final product is available for drinking in the fall season.
