Lovely perfume here, a bit of liquorice root and potpourri, red fruits mainly. Medium to full bodied, fresh and red fruited, plenty of open-weave grainy tannin with a fine sandy grip on the long finish. Good now, though I suspect it has a little bit more to offer."
Aged for one year in large Slovenian oak barrels
The grapes for this wine are grown in Scaparoni, across the river from the town of Alba and the Barbaresco DOCG. Vinification takes place in vertical stainless steel tanks. As soon as fermentation begins, a continual, timed pump-over process is started. Controlled temperature fermentation lasts approximately ten days
Food Pairing : A very food-friendly wine. A great match for pasta and dishes made with rice. Ideal with meat entrées.
