The perfect blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Barbera grapes grown in the Canelli area, as well as neighboring villages. Harvested in September, this wine is fermented in stainless steel for ten days, and then aged in new French oak for twelve months prior to bottling.
In Alterego, Barbera's plush fruit and moderate tannins mingle beautifully with Cabernet's muscular structure, producing a superb wine that is round and concentrated on the palate. Alterego offers delicious aromas of red currant and cherry fruit, followed by notes of cassis
and toasted wood.
