WinemakingThe overripe harvest of the grapes softens Nebbiolo’s peculiar tannins and Barbera’s acidity. The must obtained from the pressing - destemming phase is left to macerate for a week in contact with the skins, in large stainless steel tanks, at a temperature between 25 ° and 28 ° C. Frequent pumping over allows excellent color extraction and good body. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine is placed in barrique for 12 months, followed by another 12 months in 20-hectolitre barrels and a year of refinement in the bottle.
Other curiosities

The colour is intense, deep, almost impenetrable ruby. The nose is immediately warm and enveloping, with intense hints of blueberry, small red berries and notes of roasting and leather. At taste, it is round and full; the great concentration of fruit, supported by a tannic profile, makes it an important but very pleasant wine. The basic composition guarantees this wine longevity and readiness to drink.
