Case of 6 bottles

Bottle Size: 750 ml

Vintage: 2019

Varietals: Nebbiolo 100%

Alcohol %: 14

Region: Piemonte

Tasting Notes: Elegant, fine tannins, a persistent taste and minerality. It accurately reflects the characteritics of the soil of origin. Its tannins develop from a rugged soil, sandy and calcareous. Ruby red in colour with light garnet reflections, delicate notes of spices and liquorice and a desirable bouquet of red berries. Extraordinarily long finish.

Ageing/Vinification: Scrupulous vine growing, done through the organic method since 2010. Careful manual selection of grapes, both in the vineyards and in the cellar, gentle de-stemming and pressing. Fermentation and maceration for approximately 25 days. Malolactic fermentation follows in December. Aged in 100% in 20-hectoliter French oak barrels for 30 months. Bottling takes place at the end of the summer, with a further year of bottle ageing before release on the market.

Vineyard: 70 YO vines in Castiglione Falletto, located 250m above sea level, with southeastern exposure, 2,00 x 0,90 meters spacing, 4,500 vines/hectare density, Guyot upward-trained vertical-trellised training system. One of the oldest vineyards of the estate, over 50 years old.
