True to their style, they pay close attention to the vineyard management: non-aggressive thinning; accurate harvest of grapes done by hand, and vinification with a long maceration of up to thirty days.
100% Nebbiolo. The colour is an intense garnet red, elegantly transparent. The bouquet is full, complex and enveloping, with a flowery scent of dried roses and violets; fruity, of raspberries and wild strawberries, for the younger wines; of jam, marmalade and nutmeg, that with the passing of time develops hints of black pepper, licorice, tobacco, leather and smoke. Distinctly tannic when young, with a rich body; its taste is dry, full, robust but velvety, very harmonious and enveloping. This Barolo is a robust and tannic wine, but it is also soft and elegant. By a long maceration on the skins after fermentation, the wine ages for nearly 3 years in oak barrels with a capacity of 30 to 100 hl, in order to enhance its attributes. Preferable with: red meats, roasted meat, game meat, medium or hard ripening cheeses.
