Average vine age:45 - 90 years

A distinctive aroma and ethereal with hints of red fruits and spicy note, excellent flavor, and body, soft, harmonious and round

This late harvest of ripe, healthy grapes is characterized by an intense, full-bodied, and long-lasting taste. The delicate sweetness and subtle spicy varietal characters kind in connection with the fine fruity acidity make this wine a pleasure drop for leisure hours.

The grapes are harvested by hand when fully mature, destemmed, and delicately pressed. The must is fermented in vats at a controlled temperature of 26°-28°C. The wine is then aged in large oak barrels of 25 hl for 12 months, 12 months in barrique, and two years in bottle.

Nizza is a red DOCG wine produced in the northern Italian region of Piedmont. It is made from the Barbera grape, and the zone of production is limited to the comuni (municipalities) of Agliano Terme, Belveglio, Bruno, Calamandrana, Castel Boglione, Castelnuovo Belbo, Castelnuovo Calcea, Castel Rocchero, Cortiglione, Incisa Scapaccino, Moasca, Mombaruzzo, Mombercelli, Nizza Monferrato, Rocchetta Palafea, San Marzano Oliveto, Vaglio Serra and Vinchio within the province of Asti.

The Berta winery, located on the border of two famous grape-growing regions: the Monferrato and Langhe, has been a family-run winemaker for seven-generations.

From the vineyards, located in viticultural areas, the beautiful surrounding landscape may also be enjoyed, stretching across to the hill of San Michele in the form of a natural amphitheater continuously exposed to the sun.

Thanks to the diverse characteristics of the soil, various varieties of grape can be grown: the red Barbera, Dolcetto, Brachetto, and white Cortese and Moscato.

The Berta Paolo winery is situated in an area particularly suited for the cultivation of grapevines. The vineyards and winery are indeed at Nizza Monferrato, where the rolling hills of Monferrato meet the rugged peaks of the Langhe. Since July 2014, this area has been awarded the prestigious UNESCO's World Heritage status "for the exceptional quality of the wine-growing landscape and the deep wine culture."
