Why we love this wine
Grapes & TerroirGrape variety: 100% Nebbiolo. Origins: the vineyards are located in Alba and Diano d’Alba villages. Type of soil: limestone/calcareous. Harvesting time: end of September – beginning of October
Winemaking8-10 days in steel tanks with carefully controlled temperature. Ageing: after malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged for 12-14 months in 400 litre tonneaux. 60% of the barrels are made with American oak, the remaining 40% with French oak. Bottling takes place after the necessary fining in a barrel at least 3 months before release.
TastingColour: ruby red with orange reflections. Nose: delicate with suggestions of fruit, liquorice and violet, which becomes finer and more marked with ageing. Palate: full and harmonious with soft and elegant tannins, long and persistent.
Wine & Food PairingCan be perfectly matched with red meat or medium and matured cheeses.
