Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes for this wine come from south and southwest facing vineyards that are between 5 and 18 years old, at approximately 328 to 383 yards in altitude. The terroir is marly, white tufa in the Visette (Bussia) area, near the village of Monforte d’Alba. Masceration on skins takes place over ten days at controlled temperatures, with natural fermentation taking place using native yeasts. The wine is aged in large Slavonian oak barrels for 36 months, with a further aging of six months in the bottle at a controlled temperature.


Serving Hints
A great accompaniment to roasts, or game, or truffle-flavored dishes, or mature cheeses.
