harvest note

The 2016 vintage will be remembered for a long time thanks to its outstanding excellence in terms of quality. It has been a harvest characterized by a weather that has followed the norm of the season, presenting no type of anomaly and allowing very healthy grapes to reach perfect and uniform maturation at standard time. An appropriate thinning of bunches done by the end of August, has enabled the plant to channel all of its energy onto the few bunches on its last month, thus resulting in an excellent maturation aided by sunny days and cool nights. An outstanding vintage.

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.
