Made with late harvested 100% Barbera grapes grown in estate-owned vineyards in Rocchetta Tanaro.

In the Cellar
Temperature controlled maceration on skins takes place for 20 days. The wine spends 15 months in oak casks and then ages in the bottle for a year.

Very deep ruby red colour with garnet highlights. Ample, rich and complex bouquet with numerous scents of fruit and a background of vanilla, liquorice and cocoa notes. Full, powerful flavour with a great structure, yet elegant and sensual at the same time, harmonious and very persistent. Ideal with roasts and meat dishes, also with sauces, and mature cheeses.

Service
Serve at 18°.
