    Wine Description:
    This 100% Nebbiolo wine is named for the prestigious Brunate cru from which these grapes originate.

    Fermentation takes place in stainless steel and is induced by indigenous yeasts. The process concludes with a maceration period of 10-15 days. Following malolactic conversion, which takes place in December, the wine spends 12 months in barrique (50% new; 50% second passage) followed by at least 12 more months in large casks of 25HL.

    Tasting Notes:
    This is a silky-smooth Barolo that shows great aromatic complexity. Aromas of ripe red cherries, dried roses, red licorice, and cloves combine with notes of tobacco and earth. On the palate, this wine is richly tannic with a long, pleasant finish.

    Food Pairing:
    Pair this wine with elegant red meat dishes like Châteaubriands or filet mignon medallions with crabmeat béchamel sauce.
