Grapes: 100% Nebbiolo
Vineyard: The grapes are selected from the sunny vineyards located on the Langhe hills.
Harvest: The grapes are carefully picked by hand in the second half of October.
Vinification: After picking, the grapes are immediately de-stemmed and crushed. Fermentation takes place exclusively with indigenous yeasts, naturally reaching around 30°C. Frequent remontage is carried out during fermentation for optimum extraction of colour and tannins. Malolactic occurs naturally.
The wine is aged for 6 months in stainless steel, then for 30 months in traditional large Slavonian oak barrels.
Tasting Notes: Deep ruby red with a bouquet of violet, spices and pepper. Great depth of character on the palate with classic damson fruit flavours, good amount of spice and bold tannins. Suggested breathing time before serving is 1 – 2 hours.
Pair with: This wine is a great partner for red meat dishes, mushroom risotto, strong cheeses such as Brown’s Parmesan or aged goat’s gouda and dark chocolate.
