Produced by Damilano since 2008, Barbera d’Asti represents a new viticultural challenge: growing the most important native varietal in Piedmont.The production of Barbera d’Asti is the fruit of a recent rental agreement which grants Damilano vineyard management rights over a 11 hectare vineyard in Casorzo in the province of Asti, an area in which Barbera has been grown since the 1800s.This 100% Barbera wine is produced from a Monferrato vineyard that is 20 to 30 years old. The soil contains white marl and tends to be calcareous.This wine has a red color with intense purple tones and a fruit nose with light spice notes. It has a persistent flavor reminiscent of currants, violets, cherries and vanilla.
The L’Avenir Single Block Pinotage is made from a selection of only the finest barrels produced from L’Avenir’s famed Block 2 Pinotage vineyard. This is the Estate’s flagship and the pinnacle of modern, Stellenbosch Pinotage.A symphony of violets, potpourri, dried cranberries and hints of dark chocolate. Fresh and inviting, yet complex, layered and intriguing.Well-judged oak, fruit purity and textured richness are hallmarks of this world class wine. The palate is generous and complex, with fresh cherries and a subtle, sweet spiciness that distinguishes fine Stellenbosch Pinotage.
