WINE-MAKING:

 

Brief maceration of the solid parts (skins and seeds) in the must, lasting approximately 4-5 days, during which the contents of the vat are pumped over for short  but frequent periods. The  purpose  of this wine-making  process is to obtain a wine with a fresh, fruity flavour.

Intensely ruby red in colour ; its  bouquet  tends to be flowery, evolving to ethereal with moderate ageing; dry, fresh, full and harmonious and slightly sweet  on  the  palate.

 

SERVING SUGGESTIONS:

Barbera d'Asti Superiore

GRAPE VARIETY: Barbera 100 %

 

ORIGIN:

 

“Il Salice” is obtained by pressing Barbera d’Asti grapes which come from the estate’s oldest    vineyards, located  on  the  higher  part of  the  South-East face of the hill, the best position for  cultivating  barbera grapes.

 

WINE-MAKING:

 

“The grapes are placed in small crates and taken to the cellar where, after de-stalking and crushing, the skins are left to macerate in the must for a period of between 8  and  10-15  days.  The  fermentation  temperature is around 28-30       degrees centigrade and during this process, the wine is       accurately pumped over. After fermentation, the wine is drawn off the vat, left to clear by decanting and then racked  off  repeatedly.   Malolactic fermentation is induced by warming up the cellar. This is a biological process to which the wine is subject to reduce acidity.    It is characterised by the transformation of malic acid, which is stronger, into lactic acid, which is weaker (in other words this process conveys smoothness to the taste) The wine is left to mature in wood for about 7-8 months and then refined in bottles for at least 6 months before being released for sale.

 

 

CHARACTERISTICS:

 

Deep ruby red color  with violet hues, its

bouquet  is vinous, fruity, round, with brushwood scents . At the taste is complex,   harmonious,   intense  and  persistent, well-structured

 

SERVING SUGGESTIONS:

 

Service temperature 16°- 18°. Perfect with first dishes with meat sauce, meat dishes and ripened cheeses.

Barbera d'asti Superiore Nizza DOCG

GRAPE VARIETY: Barbera 100 %

 

ORIGIN:

 

Selection of Barbera grapes  coming from our estate   vineyards planted in 1987 and 1990 with a South-West by Sud-East  exposure in  the village of  San Marzano        Oliveto.

 

WINE-MAKING:

 

This Barbera d’Asti is produced from grapes which are subject to a rigorous selection  process  which begins in the vineyard with the careful  and  often severe thinning of the bunches.

These precious berries are gathered with  extreme care and the bunches of grapes are placed gently in small crates to avoid damaging them.

After processing, the wine is left to refine for 18 months in small, precious, French oak barrels which enable it to reach a specific maturity thanks to the formation of aromas which  enhance its quality.

After bottling, the bottles are laid horizontally to rest for a few months before being packaged.

 

 

CHARACTERISTICS:

 

Bright ruby red color with slight violet hues

The  intense  bouquet with evident hints of spice, dried roses and vanilla presents a full, austere and rich flavour with good tannin but soft.

 

SERVING SUGGESTIONS:

 

It’s  a   suitable   companion  for  structured meat   dishes,   game,  ripened and blue cheeses.

After a summer green  harvest, the  grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon are late  harvested  and laid to dry on racks for around one month, to obtain the best sugar           concentration.

CHARACTERISTICS:

 

The dark  ruby red colour has violet highlights. On the nose it is intense with a dried fruits and red berry jam bouquet , and a light alcohol inkling. Full-bodied and intense  on  the  palate,  with   hints  of  ripe  berries,  harmonious and slightly sweet .

About us

Company details

The ridge which is home to the Mondo family cellar     bears a striking resemblance to the profile of a sleeping woman.

 

The specific composition of   the   soil  and   a  temperate    microclimate make it the ideal place for cultivating vines.

The Mondos  have  been  recognised  in  the town of San Marzano Oliveto, near Asti, as wine-makers for generations and are, as such, much appreciated.

 

Their   estate   covers about  twelve  hectares   of   vineyards,   approximately 60 % of which are dedicated to the cultivation of Barbera grapes while the rest is divided between Moscato Bianco, Dolcetto, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cortese, Chardonnay  and Favorita varieties.

 

The   company,  which  still    maintains    its   artisan, family  character, is run by Valerio, his daughter Beatrice and his    father Franco.

Valerio  and  Beatrice  are  eonologists  and  as  well   as

concerning themselves  with  the  agricultural  aspect of  the

vineyards they supervise each step of the  grape  selection and the wine-making  process which takes place in  the family  homestead,  just  a  stone’s throw from the vineyards and Franco is the agricultural  expert  responsible  for the   various  stages   of cultivation.

Among the most important wines – all of the Mondo family’s wine are D.O.C. and D.O.C.G. – the Barbera d’Asti is       perhaps the  most important of all.

 

The  range  is  completed by the other wines: Moscato d’Asti, Passito of Moscato, Monferrato  Dolcetto, Cortese  dell’ Alto Monferrato, Monferrato Bianco, Monferrato Rosso and Grappa obtained from the artful distillation of Moscato and Barbera marc.
