CURIOSITY: Each vineyards expresses its potential differently, it is up to the farmer to understand how to allocate the product. Traditionally Scagliola family destined young vines to a lively Barbera “La Birba” and to a traditional Barbera “Frem”. But the needs of the market are constantly changing and the request to have a young but still Barbera gave us the opportunity to produce “Mati”: a Barbera young like the “Birba” but traditional as “Frem” so the label has been reinterpreted with the baby and the dog to highlight the marriage between the two ones.
