The vineyard

The vine are Guyot grown with the countertrellis system of planting, and medium-short pruning. The vineyard has an average density of 4,000 vine-stocks per hectare. The production is reduced by the cluster thinning method

Vinification

The grapes are collected when they are ripened and laid into small 20kg perforated boxes. A strict cluster selection is made. The grapes are taken to the wine cellar and crushed within a few hours from the harvest. The alcoholic fermentation, due to indigenous yeasts, take place at a controlled temperature  on average 32°C. The marc maceration last 70 hours with intense pumping over and wine pressing. The new wine is then kept in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature to complete the fermentation process. After the malolactic fermemntation  we start the wine oxigenation to help the different tannins melting together

Fining

3-6 months in stainless steel vats

Tasting notes

It has an intense but vivid violet colour, great vintage for the dolcetto wines which developed on the nose an intricated plot made by cherry, red currant, violet and iris flowers. On the palate hits with menthol hints and smooth tannins providing a very rich sapidity and a unexpected minerality

Table wine, very good with Langhe specialities such as salamis and fresh cheese
