A magnificent, noble and austere, fine dry red wine made by vinifying - with a lengthy maceration - scrupulously selected, perfectly ripe grapes grown only on our own vineyards. It is very well structured, with a good alcoholic content and great balance. Excellent with big dishes, grilled meats and cheeses.
Town: La Morra.
Solar Exposure: South, South-west.
Vine: Nebbiolo (Lampia, Michet).
Breeding kind: Arched-cane Guyot system.
Ageing: The two-year of ageing takes place in traditional medium-sized Slavonian oak casks.
Wine making: The selected grapes are picked when they are completely ripe and tbc vinification is begun immediately. Tbc fermentation on the skins lasts 10-12 days, with frequent pumping over of the must and strong plunging of the cap below the surface. Special care is taken over the immediate development of the malolactic fermentation.
Colour: Deep ruby-red, with nice garnet highlights which become more marked on ageing.
Bouquet: Intense, spicy, tending overall to ethereal, very persistent, notes of coffee and rose.
Taste: Austere, great structure, harmonious and velvety.
Ageing: In the bottle until the wine is three years old.
