Pure nose of fruit, soft and light mid-palate, lingering deep finish. Iron fist in a velvet glove. Due to its inner freshness, it will surely last for decades, but it so good now that I don’t know if someone can resist. Perfect with pad-thai, hot pot, fish soup, middle-aged cheese, raclette.
Vinification of grapes coming from our La Morra vineyards. Alcoholic fermentation happens in concrete and lasts around 12-14 days, followed by a 4-5 day post-fermentative maceration. Total skin-juice contact is around 3 weeks. Then malolactic takes place in concrete and steel and the wine ages for around 20 months in 52-hl and 25-hl oak barrels crafted by Garbellotto. After aging, the wine rests for some months in concrete, steel and plastic, before being bottled, usually in July-August of the year before the release.
