• Amistà produces only two wines: Amistà Nizza DOCG, and Amistà Nizza DOCG Riserva, both made from 100-percent estate-grown Barbera grapes. • The Nizza DOCG appellation was established in 2014 and it is the original home of Barbera d’Asti, which found here some of its greatest expressions. • Although still not certified organic, the winery uses innovative farming practices in the vineyard. • Enologist Luca D’Attoma, internationally acclaimed and renownedwinemaker,manageseveryaspectofproduction, from vineyard management to vinification and bottling. • Large-format cask aging gives the wine depth and complexity without imparting invasive wood flavors. • Soil types: the classic sandstone and limestone marl to be found throughout Monferrato, a UNESCO-designated wine growing region. • Amistà is the latest project by Michele Marsjai, co-owner of the Ottosoldi winery, a partnership with Stefano Moccagatta of Villa Sparina fame and producer of critically acclaimed Gavi.
Amistà wines are made only from Barbera grapes that have been grown in the variety’s historic homeland, Nizza Monferrato, and vinified by leading enologist\, Luca D’Attoma. This compelling, focused, and highly nuanced expression of Barbera has already become a benchmark for the Nizza DOCG, which was created in 2014..
