Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The Nebbiolo grapes for this wine come from vineyards located in Neive and Barbaresco Villages, at 200 to 300 ft. above sea level. The average age of the vines is 40 years and they are grown on a Southwest and Southern facing in calcerous clay soil, at a density of about 2,000 plants per acre. After harvesting, the grapes are pressed and the must is fermented in temperature-controlled steel tanks after a short period in contact with dry ice to increase complexity and aroma. Skin maceration takes place over 8 days, assuring good color and body. The wine spends twelve months in French barriques and Slavonian oak casks, followed by six months in bottles before shipping.



Serving Hints
This wine is a perfect accompaniment red meats like and pork, as well as an array of Italian cheeses, pastas and risotto.
