|Categories for this Product:||

Vinification: it is made in a traditional way, with a 7-8 day floating cap fermentation in
stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature (28° C).
Ageing: it is aged in wood for at least 8 months and then in the bottle for 2-3 months. It will usually reach its peak 3-4 years after the harvest, but this period can vary
considerably depending on the vintage.
Tasting Notes: When young, it features a fragrance which is wonderfully spontaneous and full of surprise: in its bouquet, colour, and generous, velvety body this langhe Nebbiolo brings out all the typical qualities of the magnificent vine it is made from. Later in life its colour becomes garnet-red with strong orange shades, and its nose deepens, with traces of withered flowers, such as roses and, above-all, geraniums. Its warm, soft, well-bodied flavour is velvety and well-balanced, lingering in the mouth.
Pairings: Ideal with flavoursome pasta dishes, meats and medium-mature cheeses.
