Ruby red with orange reflections. The bouquet on the nose is intense and complex with notes of ripe currants and raspberries accented by hints of truffle and violet.

The flavor is elegant and balanced with a good body. Soft tannins and a long fruity finish



Vinification: from grapes coming from vineyards located in the municipality of Monforte d’Alba, in particular from the Bussia, Le Coste di Monforte and Ravera di Monforte MGA. The Guyot-trained vines have a density of 5000 plants per hectare and are between 15 and 40 years old. The soil is of medium limestone-clay mixture. After harvesting, the grapes undergo soft destemming and the must obtained is left to ferment in steel tanks at 27°C. Alcoholic fermentation lasts about 3-4 weeks, with two daily pumpings over. The wine then remains in contact with the skins, in post-maceration, for a further 4 weeks. After racking, malolactic fermentation occurs naturally and then the wine is transferred into barrels.

Ageing: 24 months in 25 hl oak casks and 12 months in cement tanks.

Description: on the nose there are hints of plum, raspberry, ripe red and black cherry, blackberry, liquorice. The palate is classic, rich, powerful with silky, well-integrated tannins.

Food Pairings: pasta with meat sauce, braised or roasted red meats, game. Aged cheeses.
