Cuneo Province, Piemonte
This wine can be considered the “little brother” of Barolo, is
processed with an initial soaking period of 7 days and then
is aged for 9 months in large oak barrels to soften the
angularity typical of Nebbiolo. Bottled early autumn is
stored for 3 – 4 years before drinking in order to
promote the maturation of tannins.
Total acidity : 5,50 g/l
Alcoholic degree: 12,50%
Colour ruby-red of varying intensity, with garnet highlights when aged.
Light and delicate at the nose, with a hint of violets that becomes stronger and improves on ageing.
Taste from dry to invitingly sweet, with good body and tannins when young; smooth and well-balanced.
Serving temperature: 16-18 °C
