about 15,000 to 30,000 750 ml bottles,depending on the vintageAlcohol content

13-14.0% vol., depending on the vintage

Vinification and ageing

a classic wine, with average fermentation and maceration lasting 8-10 days, very similar to that used for Barolo. It ages in traditional barrels for over a year and, during its whole production cycle, the utmost attention is paid to all the details which convey smoothness and elegance to a young Nebbiolo

Note

this is our product which enables an approach to the great emotions offered by an important Langa wine made exclusively of Nebbiolo grapes. Increased readiness and a drinkable quality make it possible to appreciate this wine without the “reverential fear” usually acknowledged to Barolo

Tasting characteristics

Appearance: garnet red with variable intensity depending on the vintage

Bouquet: delicate and pleasant, the predominant notes are of raspberry and violet, with the imposition of secondary perfumes very similar to those of Barolo as it ages

Flavour: a complete and temptingly harmonious wine the elegance of which makes up for its lesser structure compared with that of Barolo

It is best to decant and serve it at temperatures between 18-20°C

A wine for drinking with all courses of a meal, it offers its best expression when served with rich and tasty dishes, from fresh pasta with rich meat of vegetables sauces, to grilled or roast red meat dishes. It is also excellent with soft and delicate blue cheeses
