From vineyards located 300m above sea level, this 100% Nebbiolo 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 15 days, assuring good color and body. The wine then spends 36 months in oak, 50% in 5,000 litre Slovenian oak barrels and 50% in 500 litre French tonneaux, followed by six months in bottle prior to release.
Garnet red with orange tinges, this is rich and opulent with powerful aromas of dried fruits, leather and cigar box, backed by more elegant floral and herbal aromas. The firm tannins and quenching acidity are softened out by silky dark fruits, prune, date and blackberry. Wonderfully unyielding length with a beguiling complexity that unwinds itself after a couple of hours decanting.
Enjoy with robust meat dishes and mature hard cheeses.
