Vinification of Nebbiolo grapes from hillside vines, south-facing,then “reinforced” with slightly dried grapes picked up from the “murache” of Tirano. This wine ages for 2 years in oak barrels and barriques and for other 6 - 8 months in bottle.
In a glass
Ruby-red with purple notes and terracotta colour nuances. Ethereal and enveloping, it opens to the nose with elegant sensation of ripe red fruit (plum, blackberry and mild marascacherry) followed by the toasted hazelnut, tobaccoand officinal flavour.
At the taste it balances the intensity of the structure and the sapidand enveloping tannins with the generous fruity - spicy character.
This wine has the prerogative to improve and refine over the years. Great already after 3 - 4 years, it reaches the summit with 10 -12 years of agingin bottle
