Winemaking Notes: This cuvée is a selection of Nebbiolo from the younger vines of various cru Barbaresco holdings supplemented by grapes from the neighboring village of Neive. The average age of the vines is 30 years. The wine fermented in stainless steel for 10 days to 2 weeks and then refined in large oak barrels for an additional year before being bottled.

Tasting Notes: Light cherry, raspberry, violet, a touch of menthol and spices come together in this elegant, medium-bodied wine, backed by fine tannins. This is an astonishing value as are all of the fine wines from this remarkable estate.
