Wine obtained from young Barbaresco Nebbiolo vineyards and harvested by hand in small hampers during October. The grapes, once in the cellar, are delicately pressed; the fermentation starts with the use of indigenous yeasts and takes 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 the malolactic fermentation happens. The colour is deep garnet red with classical Nebbiolo aromas of violets and roses. The taste is young but intense with sweet and fine tannins and it has a good persistence. This Nebbiolo best accompanies main courses of meat, sausages and hard cheeses.
