In this vineyard, we are extremely meticulous with our grape selection, going through the vineyard at least three times during the growing season to focus on the highest quality clusters. In the cellar, we do a very long, traditional maceration for 50-60 days, giving the highest level of concentration and extraction of the skins, then ferment in open top vats in a classic style of Barolo. This produces a wine that is very floral but structured for long aging with very delicate tannins and intense aromatics.

Press Notes :

95 Points, Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast (2015 vintage)

Crushed mint, blue flower, scorched earth and new leather aromas abound. The palate is delicious and concentrated but also boasts a weightless elegance, delivering juicy Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, licorice and tobacco. Tightly woven, velvety tannins envelope the savory flavors. Drink 2025–2035.
