Winemaking The freshly harvested grapes are destemmed and carefully pressed, then placed in vats for fermentation at 24°C for 4 days, such procedure to fully bring out the characteristic Nebbiolo primary aromas. White fermentation (without the skins) happens at a temperature of 22°C, followed by the drawing-off. After few pouringius, the malolactic fermentation takes place.

Ageing In steel containers at cellar temperature, until the bottling phase between April and May. It “doesn’t touch” wood.

Tasting notes Weak garnet red colour. The bouquet is initially winey then, when left to stand, it takes on the intense and persistent scent of flowers like roses and violets, and freshly picked fruit, blackcurrants, sour black cherries, raspberry, and strawberry, with a hint of cocoa. There is a slightly tart sensation to the palate, tempered by the fruity sweetness and subtle tannins.

Best served Between 16 and 17°C.

Perfect pairing A wine that goes well with snacks and aperitifs with bread, salami and cheeses, or with a lunch where pasta is served, like tagliatelle, stuffed pasta, or spaghetti with meat sauce. Also ideal with simple meat dishes.

Storage Keep the bottle horizontal, in a cool
 and ventilated room, protected from direct light and vibrations.
