Mature ruby red colour with an orange rim. The nose o ers some wood, dry spices, fresh red fruit, cherry liqueur and tar. The palate is fairly dense, still with a youthful texture, a tannic bite, fresh red fruit, good grip and length, still a bit unresolved deserving another
few years of ageing.
90/100 Blind Tasted, Andreas Larsson

GRAPE VARIETY
100% Nebbiolo

VINEYARDS CHARACTERISTICS
South East exposition, altitude 380 m asl. White clay-calcareous soils. The light color of the soil is due to the high amount of calcium carbonate. Clay, present in greater quantities than silt and sand, associated with a high quantity of calcium carbonate, allows the Nebbiolo to grow and complete its vegetative cycle without water stress and with limited vegetative vigor. This type of soil gives the wine longevity, freshness, elegance and a great character.
