Drinking Dates:
2015 to 2025
100% Nebbiolo
After pressing, the grapes ferment for eight days followed by a four day maceration. The wine matures for 18 months in barriques of which 30% are new and 70% used so as to not to extract too much oak during the process. There is additional fining in steel casks up to 12 months before bottling.
Critic Reviews:
"Really penetrating pine note balances some mulling spices on the nose, the perfumes of the fruit are really deeply embedded here but the quality, ripe and slightly wild, gamy, and spicy berries is very attractive, there’s a touch of dusty ash top note, , really attractive nose - a bit thick for the first second then rich and focused with great, pure fresh red fruit, really wonderfully ripe tannins and fine acidity that supports the precise ripe earthy raspberry fruit, great persistence, a really great showing, very clean ." 93/100 (Gregory dal Piaz, Snooth)
