Wine-making technique:

The grapes are pressed and transferred into temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Traditional fermentation with daily pumping of the must over the cap for at least 20/30 days, following which the wine is drawn off into casks of French oak holding 25 hl and/or second/third-fill French oak barriques. The Nebbiolo d’Alba stays here for 12/18 months before being bottled in Bordeaux bottles with natural corks. Cellared for a further 6 months in the bottle prior to release.

Tasting notes:

Elegant wine which is well-structured and at the same time fine and delicate.
Varietal pale red, with clear-cut aroma of violets, roses and red berries, as well as overtones of the wood it is aged in. Its strong, yet refined character is brought out on the palate, with unobtrusive tannins and an almost sweet finish.

Food & wine matching:

A perfect match for soups, first courses, red and white meats, medium-mature cheeses.
