Bottles

Stella Rossa spends its first 10 months of life maturing in Slavonian oak barrels and in French oak barriques. Thanks to this aging, the wine receives a slight tannic note, which will slowly fade with the refinement in the bottle. This Barbera d’Asti is really easy to drink, smooth, and pleasant on the palate.
This wine owes its name to the vineyards which surround our winery in Nizza Monferrato, which originally belonged to Stella farm.
