Production area and characteristics
The grapes come from the Langhe and Roero hills. The terrain comprises calcareous marl and quartz sand.
Yield per hectare
The hand-harvested grapes are destemmed and very soft crushed. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Maceration lasts about 15 days.
The wine is aged for about a year in 88 hectolitre Slovenian oak casks. The choice of large casks is dictated by the need to preserve the freshness and varietal notes.
Ruby red with garnet hints; the delicate, appealing, intense bouquet is reminiscent of violets, roses and raspberries. The taste is warm, velvety and harmonious.
Goes well with meats and medium-ripe cheeses.
