Intense ruby red, with slightly spicy and vinous aromas of wild berries and cherries. Velvety, soft and full-bodied on the palate, with a typical almond aftertaste.
Diano D'Alba DOC
The position of the vineyards with their south-east and south-west aspect and the clay-calcareous and calcareous-siliceous soils with marl of Diano provide excellent conditions for the growing of long-lasting organic wines with great structure.
Vineyard elevations of 820 feet asl and average vine age is between 30 to 40 years.
Harvested by hand in boxes in September/October. The grapes are pressed and transferred into temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Traditional fermentation with daily pumping of the must over the cap for at least 15 days, after which the wine is drawn off and stored in stainless steel tanks for 12 months. It is then cellared in Bordeaux bottles with natural corks for a further 3 to 6 months prior to its release.
This is one of the Langhe’s historic wines, so it goes wonderfully with local dishes as well as others, such as tagliatelle with meat sauce, filled pastas, charcuterie, boiled meats, poultry and semi-hard cheeses.
