100% Nebbiolo. With neither single cru released in this vintage (a decision made some time back by Roberto and Enrico), fruit from all four of their crus has gone into this blend: Molsino, Valferana, Garavoglie and Casacce, ranging from 290-420 metres altitude. After gentle destemming and crushing, a 15-day fermentation/maceration in steel takes place, followed by a little over 3 years ageing in large Slavonian botti. The final stage is an additional 6-12 months in cement vats before releasing to the market. Bright red/cherry fruits, candied orange with hints of licorice and violet florals; textured and with exceptional structure, while the tingling acidity and focused tannins drive through to finish.
