How it's made

Vines are trained on a low Guyot trellis at 4,00 to 5,000 vines/ha. The grapes were hand-harvested, de-stemmed and then crushed to small fermenters for 12 days, with daily pumping-over. The wine was drained off at dryness and the skins transferred to a small press. After pressing, the wine was settled for two days and then racked to stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation. After three years maturation in 5,000 liter Slavonian oak casks, the wine is then racked from oak and gently fined.

Tasting Notes

A fine, expressive style with Barolo's classic combination of mature, lightly floral aromas with richness and structure. Dark plum, leather and delicate violet aromas plus notes of wood smoke and brown spice. A full, firm and ripe red with rich and powerful flavors. All balanced by ripe tannins, complex and savory notes with a long finish.
