Open Cellars in Harvest: September and October 2018. In September / October the scent of grapes invites wine lovers in the Piedmont and wineries welcome you with tastings, lunches, competitions and rapulas in the vineyards.
Open Cellars has become over time a philosophy, a style of travel and discovery of the Italian wine territories, which sees, from year to year, more and more tourists, curious and enthusiastic approaching the cellars, eager to make a different experience from the common . In addition to the possibility of tasting wines and buying them directly from the farm, it is possible to enter the cellars to discover the secrets of winemaking and refining.
The Mtv Wineries offer a weekend of wine and food: tastings and culinary delights with lunches and dinners on the farmyard, snacks, hunting for food and wine treasures. There will be no "ad hoc" events in each Cellar: music, dances on the farmyard, art exhibitions, trekking in the vineyard, available and bike hire.
Our tastings combine wine and tradition in one; the sensory cues of the tasting are told through the combination of local products with the soul of wine, which the guests have in the glass.
Our goal is to broaden the skills of judgment on wines, beyond appearances, using only smell and taste.
Guided tastings of white, rosé, novelli, red wines with different levels of refining and sparkling wines will be offered, providing the participants with the basic technical information necessary to be able to better interpret the organoleptic characteristics of the proposed wines.
Having done both things we can proceed with a fairly thoughtful judgment, but first let us pause for a moment on the main differences between Barbera d'Asti and Barbera d'Asti Superiore.
From the disciplinary point of view, the substantial diversity (in addition to a slight variation on the dry extract) is that the second must do at least one year of refinement of which 6 months in wood.
In reality there is much more difference between the two wines. The first is a fresh wine, almost never passed in wood, which is based on the fruit and the basic characteristics of the vine: medium body, important acidity, few tannins and almost never pungent. The second is a "big brother" to whom the use of homeopathic wood (large or small) is not supposed to confer those tannins that the vine does not have in large quantities, together with the power and possibility of aging.
We are therefore faced on the one hand by a young wine to be consumed within two to four years and on the other by a medium-long aging wine which should not be consumed preferably dettaglio
We bring you to find undiscovered vineyards which will astonish you for the beauty of the landscapes.
You ride among top vineyards from which some of the finest Italian wines have origin, such as Barbera and Nebbiolo, you find out typical and top quality food products and explore small and beautiful villages of this Piedmont's corner.

The castle was founded as a fortress in the Middle Ages , then refines transformed into an elegant residence , now dominates the vineyards as a careful guardian , almost in custody and protection of their grapes and those who love wisdom and transform them into fine wines .
