It is the first wine of the house; our wine for special occasions; with great body, complex structure and deep garnet red color. It has fine and elegant scent of violets, mint and cherry jam. The palate is soft and smooth to continue in length with dense and silky tannins.
Made with only Nebbiolo grapes, aged for 12-15 months in French oak barrels of 225 liters, of which one-third new, and 12 months in large oak casks of 20 hl. Refinement continues in the bottle for at least other 12 months before sale. Great potential for aging (at least 20 years). It is better to the consumer at 18-19°C in large crystal glasses.
We recommend pairings with dishes of roast red meat and game. It is great to accompany the first main course of the Piedmontese cuisine: agnolotti and tajarin with meat ragout or gravy sauce.
