Tasting Notes: The name derives from the location of the vineyards, historically titled after the farmstead of the same name. Fresh red berry fruit aromas are enriched by delicate herbaceous notes. In the mouth, it is well structured with red fruit aromas such as cherry, floral nuances of violets and some pepper notes on the finish. The wine is well balanced on the palate with delicate tannins and good aging potential.

Ageing/Vinification: Aged 6 months in stainless steel tanks, 18 months in concrete tanks and 4 months in bottle.

Vineyard: Rosso Gauggiole Cru is the cherry-pick of grapes from different parcels of vineyards, located in the north-east part of the estate, ranging from 250 to 350 m a.s.l. The name derives from the location of the vineyards, historically titled after the farmstead of the same name. Soils in this area are fresh and not overly clayey, and the northeast aspect mitigates the power and heat that are typical of vineyards, which are not located at high altitude. Medium textured soil with clay.
