Location/Production

  • The grapes come from vineyards located in the municipality of Barolo located at an altitude between 280 and 380 m above sea level. The soils are of marine sedimentary origin referable to the "Piedmontese tertiary basin", characterized by the presence of clayey-calcareous sedimentary marls, marl and sand or sandstone, with a prevalence of Marne di Sant'Agata (gray silty clay sedimentary rock, sometimes bluish, rich in limestone).

 

  • This terrain gives rise to elegant, fragrant, and balanced wines within 3-4 years.
     

 

  • The harvest is followed by alcoholic fermentation with maceration of the skins for about 20 days.

 

  • The malolactic fermentation takes place in steel. Subsequently, the wine is aged in small oak barrels for 24 months. The wine rests for a further 6 months in the bottle before being put on the market.
