From 40 year old vines grown in mineral rich soils, this wine is a blend of 60% Nebbiolo and 40% Vespolina and Uva Rara. A six month long fermentation in open topped, temperature controlled tanks follows at ten day maceration to extract the glorious black cherry, rose, and violet aromas of these varieties. The wine spends 18 months in a combination of old botte and second year French barriques. As with all Nebbiolo-based wines from great terroir, the combination of good acidity and firm, sweet tannins, make this ideal candidate for cellaring for up to 20 years.
