Wine made from young Barbaresco Nebbiolo vineyards. Harvested by hand in small crates during October. The grapes, once in the cellar, were delicately pressed, fermentation starts with use of indigenous yeast and took place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures with daily pumping over for 20 days. After racking, the wine is put in large Slavonian oak barrels where malolactic fermentation takes place. The colour is deep garnet red with classic Nebbiolo aromas of violets and roses. The taste is young but intense with sweet and fine tannins with good persistence. This Nebbiolo best accompanies main courses of meat, sausages and hard cheeses.
