The Puncin is expressed with a loaded color, intense garnet with purple hues, rich olfactory hints of cherry, blackberry while the taste manifests all its power with almost palpable feeling persistent and pleasant aftertaste of almond.”

In our local hill dialect, the name of this wine denotes the hilltop, the place with the best sun exposure and the most favorable conditions for ripening the grapes. The mature grapes are rich and full-bodied, yet elegant. Indeed, Puncin in the wineglass is a vibrantly intense ruby red with a tinge of purple/with purple highlights, endowed with a distinct fragrance of blackberries, cherry blossoms and roses.

To the taste buds, it is robust and unrestrained, with an almond finish as pleasing as it is persistent.

PRODUCER'S NOTES: "The name comes from the dialect spoken on our hills and indicates the top of the hill best exposed to the sun where grapes can mature originating a rich and full bodied product but elegant at the same time. The ” Puncin ” is expressed with a loaded color , intense garnet with purple hues, rich olfactory hints of cherry, blackberry and pink while the taste manifests all its power with almost palpable feeling persistent and pleasant aftertaste of almond."

Osvaldo Barberis

We are a small family business located in one of the most beautiful areas of Langhe (Dogliani) suitable to vine, in particular to Dolcetto wine.

The farm covers an area of nine Hectares : seven hectares are devoted to Dolcetto, one to Nebbiolo of Alba and one to Barbera of Alba: the vines are on average about thirty years and they are placed in cavalcapoggio rows with traditional pruning; Guyot with high density of plants. These conditions support the whole biological management of the farm allowing us to produce sound and well ripe grapes without using chemical fertilizers or fungicides products . Also the farm rises Piemontese breed’s beefs completing the cycle of the typical Langhe’s farm.

The whole management of the vineyard is targeted to the respect of the plant and to the contained production that is exasperated by the thinning of bunches; this process makes the grapes more resistant from crittogame attacks and anticipates the aging. This process gives us the opportunity to harvest grapes rich of extracts.

In the winery a lot of attention is paid to the management of the various steps of the production and to the cleanliness of the room; these are essential conditions in order to produce wines that can best represent the territory of origin without defects or disharmony.

In order to give to the wine its peak, the products are not filtered before bottling and they have a low levels of sulphites; in this way they are able to express a pleasant and healthy drink.

In the winery the production of wine is followed by the Oenologist Piero Ballario.
