This fine Barbera is produced from six different vineyards located in the three communes of Sinio, Novello and Barolo. Because of the different locations, harvest can last up to three weeks in order to pick each parcel at optimum maturity. Ageing takes place in 50% stainless steel vats and 50% French oak barrels (20% new oak).

The result is a wine with a vibrant dark ruby/violet color possessing a deep concentration of dark berry and cherry aromatics tinged w citrus, spice and dried herbs. Quite concentrated on the palate, it maintains crisp acidity and ripe, pliable tannins. Very food friendly.
