Wine-making

To have the highest quality of grapes during harvest, we thin the vines at two different times (beginning and late August), guaranteeing an average production of 1.8 kg per vine. The grapes are shaded from their exceptional exposure to the sun by their leaves, effectively halting the drying that such strong heat would provoke. The harvest is carried out in two periods with one week in between. Fermentation begins in steel for 10-15 days, while maceration can last longer than 30 days, after which the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation for 16-18 months in wooden barrels. The wine is then transferred to stainless steel and bottled in August. It ages for a year in the bottle, then put on the market, three years after harvest

Tasting notes

Our Roero Valmaggiore has a rich and immediate profume with hints of violet, raspberry, and blackberry, and elegant touches of spice. It is rich and well-structured in the mouth, beginning with sensations of violet and cacao and ending in the powerful tannins that carry on its taste perceptions for a long finish
