Variety: 100% Nebbiolo
Age of vineyards: planted in the early 1950s
Vine training system: Guyot
Vinification: maceration on the skins in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature for 20-25 days, beginning with cold maceration (10 °C) during the first 48 hours. During this period, an extremely delicate extraction is carried out, only performing a couple of daily pumping over. It is then drained off and undergoes malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Towards December, the wine is transferred to small barrels of oak, 30% of which are new and 70% used, where they remain to age for 24 months. After decanting in stainless steel, the wine is bottled without fining or filtration.
Color: light ruby red with subtle garnet reflections
Aroma: ethereal, with uniquely sweet, spicy notes that blend perfectly with fruity and flowery aromas
Flavor: warm, slightly balsamic with delicately tannic notes offset with a good balance of alcohol. Well-structured and generous body with sweet, mouthwatering tannins. The excellent exposition of its vineyards and great thermal energy are determining factors in this wine’s character.
Serving temperature: 16°-18°C. It is particularly enjoyable to savor its initial freshness and then appreciate the evolution of its aromas as the wine slowly warms in the glass.
Evolution: ready for drinking immediately, but with the potential to age and improve for over 20 years
