from J.S… Some light and fragrant notes with spiced cherries, fresh leather and herbal accents, leading to a palate that has a chalky core. Good depth and detail. Finishes with impressive cutting freshness.
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.
