This typical red of the Langhe region is harvested from three separate parcels spread between the communes of Barbaresco and Neive. The vines are an average age of 30 years. After a fermentation of approximately 10 days in stainless steel, the wine is racked into large oak “botti” for about six months, being bottled at the onset of summer of the following year. In vintages of normal production, we ship 6000 bottles for the US market.
Medium purple in color, the wine is absolutely delicious with its aromas and tastes that suggest freshly picked red and black cherries and plum, punctuated by toasted almond, graphite, and earth notes. Relatively brief aging takes place in large old barrels, leaving almost no oak imprint on the wine.
