Varietal: Nebbiolo subvariety Lampia, Michet and Rosé.
Area of production: vineyards in Castiglione Falletto, Serralunga d’Alba, Monforte d’Alba, Barolo, Novello, La Morra, Verduno and Grinzane Cavour.
Wine-making: the grapes, harvested when fully ripened, are immediately processed when they reach the cellar. Tumultuous fermentation, which takes place at around 30°C and is followed by submerged cap maceration, lasts for about six weeks according to the traditional method. Immediately after devatting the wine, we create the ideal cellar conditions for a perfect malolactic fermentation.
Maturation and ageing: the wine matures in traditional Slavonian oak barrels of great capacity and is then aged in bottles before being sold. It enjoys an extraordinarily long life. Tasting characteristics: garnet red in colour with orangey nuances which become gradually more noticeable as the wine ages; aroma is subtle, evolved, intense, pervasive and lingering; a warm, full-bodied, complex, dry and well
