Features of production
Is the most valuable asset and the wine is produced with grapes 100%.
The Nebbiolo grape is grown in vineyards located at an altitude of 300 meters above sea level, in the cru Canova Neive.
Exposure: south, south-west.
Type of cultivation: espalier with Guyot pruning.
In the first decade of October we collect bunches of grapes, which are selected with scrupulous care and collected in perforated boxes, are immediately brought to the winery for wine-making.
Wine-making and aging
In the winery, the grapes are destemmed and the subsequent fermentation of the same in stainless stelle tanks continues for about fifteen days at a controlled temperature.
After racking, we proceed with the malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
In the following year, in March, the wine is transferred partly in French barriques and partly in French oak barrels of 50 hectoliters.
The aging in wood lasts about 24 months, after which the wine is poured into stainless steel tanks where it is allowed to rest for a few months before bottling.
The commercialization takes place after about one year from the date of bottling.
Colour: bright ruby red.
Bouquet: ethereal, intense, with notes of rose, red fruit, balsamic and slightly spicy.
Taste: very structured with hints of minerals and spice balanced with soft tannins and elegant.
Average life of wine
Over ten years from the date of harvest.
