Region: Italy / Piedmont / Barbaresco
Grapes: 100% Nebbiolo

The vineyards lie on the steep, southwest facing Langhe hillsides. Grapes are harvested an average of 10 to 15 days later than normal, resulting in extremely rich musts high in sugar and lower in acidity. Temperature controlled fermentation is followed by malolactic fermentation and aging in French Allier and Slavonian oak followed by additional aging in bottle.

harvest note

The beginning of 2013 saw a cold but average winter, with frequent snowfalls and rain which lasted from November to April. In Spring the temperature fell somewhat, resulting in a delay in the vegetative state. Beautiful and warm days arrived in June, giving rise to a perfect bud-setting. The onset of ripening began towards the 7th -10th August, where the weather was beautiful, with an excellent day/night temperature range and conditions that allowed for a constant ripening with an excellent development of aromas. Straddling August and September, there were three days of rain, followed by a month of beautiful weather. October saw several rainy days. All the grapes arrived at the winery perfectly ripe and healthy. We are very happy with the quality achieved: rich wines endowed with great freshness and highly marked aromas.

tasting note

Pure, high-toned red berry aromas and flavors with green peppercorn, spice and almond notes, surround a core of vivid acidity and moderate tannins. Similar in character to Barolo, but more delicate, this Barbaresco has great aging potential.

food pairing

This is a great wine for roasts, large game such as wild boar and venison and game birds such as pheasant, quail and partridge.
