Tasting Notes:
A crisp, clean bouquet rich in blueberry, cherry, and almond aromas. Mediumbodied in style with light vegetal tannins. This is the every day wine of the people of Piedmont. It is fresh and intended to be consumed young.

Aging: 12-18 months in stainless steel tanks, plus 3 months in bottle

Winemaking: Harvested by hand in early September. Following destalking and pressing, the must was gradually warmed to 25°C over 3-6 hours to jumpstart the fermentation process which took place over 8-10 days at the same controlled temperature in horizontal stainless steel tanks called rotofermenters. The wine was left in contact with the skins for an additional 8-10 days for maximum color extraction. 

Food Pairing : Enjoy with antipasto platters, pizza, or pasta.
