About The Wine & Winemaking Process: Dagamo is the most esteemed wine made in the winery. This gorgeously wild Barbera grown on the slopes of the Apennine Mountains at 150-200 meters in altitude is hand-harvested, destemmed, wild-yeast fermented then left on its skins for 3 months in Tuscan terracotta amphora after fermentation is done.
The action of long maceration and the amphora give the wine a character of great elegance, minerality and longevity. With this technique they support the evolution of grapes into wine in the most natural way possible, respecting the variety, the territory and the human hand in the cellar.
Barbera found in their land gives the possibility of remarkable concentration which, combined with the freshness of their clays and the Apennine climate, gives this wine an important potential for concentration. Bright and fresh, with that silky mouthfeel that well-done amphora wines can have.
