The vintage 2013: The grapes ripened beautifully during a hot August. The sensory profile was formed in September, thanks to extensive daytime and night-time temperature ranges. The grapes were harvested during October. The result is a Barolo which is both elegant and vigorous, with an intense bouquet spanning from ripe red berries to liquorice and spicy notes.Vinification:  soft destemming and crushing, maceration on skins for almost three weeks and temperature controlled fermentation, maturing in fine grain oak cask, then in stainless steel. After bottling it refines in the bottle. 38 months after harvesting it is ready to be released.
Color :  ruby red with garnet hints .
Bouquet: persistent and penetrating with scents of rose and liquorice and spices
Flavor: elegant, full-bodied and austere with recurring olfactory sensations. Mineral spicy aftertaste.
