The vineyard from which it comes is located in the Arborina strip with south exposure, with an altitude of approx. 270/300 m s.l.m., and a strong slope that allows a good drainage of the soil and therefore a natural concentration of the grapes.

Yield per hectare: 60 quintals of grapes per hectare.

Bottles produced:
5,000.

Cultivation:
vertical trellised, Guyot pruning.

Wine making:
Nebbiolo is a late grape, harvesting is normally done in October, but with increasingly hot years the harvest is becoming more frequent at the end of September. The grapes, harvested by hand in small airy boxes, are crushed and de-stemmed and fermented with indigenous yeasts. A few days before harvesting, we collect a few baskets of grapes to create the pied de cuve, a fermentation started with naturally occurring yeasts on the skins. The fermentation takes place in a rotating macerator keeping the mass in continuous movement to have a very intense extraction from the skins. If the fermentation temperature naturally reaches 30-32° degrees, it is kept at this level to prevent it from rising too much and damaging the work of the yeasts. After a maceration of about 5 days, it is drained into stainless steel tanks where alcoholic fermentation ends and malolactic fermentation takes place. Ageing takes place in barriques for 2 years. It is then bottled in the summer months of the third year without clarification or filtration. In its fourth year after a year's ageing in bottle it is put on the market.



Color: 
young, lively garnet red, with aging acquires orange reflections.

Smell: intenso, etereo, speziato con sentori di petali di rosa canina, note fruttate e balsamiche, cacao, fieno e tartufo.

Taste: intense, ethereal, spicy with hints of rosehip petals, fruity and balsamic notes, cocoa, hay and truffle.
Taste: Warm, austere, full, robust and at the same time velvety and elegant. When young it is appreciated for its freshness even if with some angularity, with the refinement the wine softens and develops the warmer and spicy tertiary sensations.

 

Pairings: braised meats, roasts, game and an excellent companion for the Alba White Truffle.

Serving temperature: 18-20°C

Serving suggestion: it is an extremely long-life wine, however it is always very pleasant to taste it in every moment of its life, and it is interesting and fascinating to appreciate its evolution over the years.
