Feminine and singular, here is our Barbera del Monferrato: unique like no other
Barbera is «feminine».
Barbera is «singular».
Barbera is the «lady in red», queen of Monferrato.
Our Barbera del Monferrato 2017 is «Femminile Singolare». An ode to the whimsical uniqueness of women, to the boundless marvel of their character, capable of containing lightness and depth, spontaneity and contemplation, fragility and unwavering strength. In a word: «feminine». In an adjective: «singular».
AN EXCEPTION FOR AN EXCEPTIONAL WINE
All the red labels of Hic et Nunc have the word “MON” in them, present in various ways: for example, the Piemonte DOC Grignolino Altromondo or the Monferrato DOC Dolcetto Mondano. A direct reference to Monferrato and the generosity of its hills. But for Femminile Singolare, we have made a “naming” exception, something we have willingly decided to do, fully aware but still respectful of its “exceptional” character.
What better occasion to launch our new label than the day dedicated to all women?
Femminile Singolare continues Hic et Nunc’s commitment and devotion to the rediscovery of the most authentic and also the most innovative soul of Monferrato. And it does so through an intensely emotional interpretation of the Barbera – which started in 2016 with the Càstore label – the variety that knows more than any other how to express and interpret the infinite shades of these hills, acknowledged as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
From marly and clayey soils, immersed in a landscape of rare beauty and uncontaminated biodiversity, comes a Barbera del Monferrato DOC with outstanding structure and delicate balance. A pure vinification that, after 25 days of maceration on the skins, extracts its personality directly from the fruit, without needing to refine in wooden barrels. This results in extraordinarily intense aromas of red fruits, unexpectedly followed by notes of cocoa, vanilla and spices. This abundance of aromas is sustained by the natural acidity of the Barbera, which our Vignale Monferrato vineyards endow with solid and juicy tannins, capable of embracing and grasping all the facets of the wine in a full and enjoyable mouth.
Hic et Nunc wishes all a Happy Women’s Day!
