Description: Brilliant ruby. Wonderful nose, wide and inviting, with notes of ripe wild raspberry and strawberry. Lots of ripe fruit on the palate, characterized by waves of fine tannins and a very long finish.
Vinification and ageing: traditional Barolo with long fermentation and maceration in oak fermenters (“tini”) at temperatures around 30°C; the wine is aged in large Slavonian oak casks for up to 30 months before being left to mature in bottle for about a year in special dark, cool cellars
Notes: fantastic vineyard which combines the potency of our lands with the elegance and harmony generated by the sandy percentage of the soil. Traditional vinification and ageing are the natural complement to the outstanding characteristics of the grapes.
Appearance: deep garnet red.
Bouquet: ethereal, featuring spicy, tobacco and brushwood notes; there are also important mineral notes.
Flavour: classic and nicely harmonious wine, tannic when young and with considerable ageing potential, making it an unmistakable “Nebbiolo of Serralunga”. It is best to decant and serve it at temperatures between 18-20°C. An important wine, it encapsulates all the history of our land and fully expresses its talents when served with rich dishes, such as roast red meats or game stew. It is also excellent with medium-mature and mature cheeses.
