    Grapes and Vineyard:

    Made with 100% Barbera grapes grown in estate-owned vineyards in Rocchetta Tanaro.

    In the Cellar:

    Temperature controlled maceration on skins lasts 20 days. The wine is then transferred to oak barrels where it ages for 12 months, before ageing for another 12 months in the bottle.

    Tasting:

    Very deep ruby red colour with garnet highlights. Rich and complex bouquet with outstanding concentration and density; scents of red berries and forest fruits are particularly evident, with a background of minty spices, vanilla and liquorice. Generous flavour with excellent body and remarkable structure, a perfect combination of the characteristics of the grape and the contribution of wood, resulting in refined smoothness and class, with a very long aromatic persistence. Ideal with roasts and meat dishes, also with sauces, and mature cheeses.

    Shows cloves and vanilla, which are well mixed into aromas of dried blackberries and licorice. Medium to full body, chewy tannins and a medium-long finish. Drink in 2020. - James Suckling 93 Points

    A powerful, concentrated style, packed with black cherry, blackberry, spice and leather flavors, revealing flashes of toasty oak. Moves like a linebacker on the palate, yet hangs together nicely. Best from 2020 through 2026. 5,000 cases made. –BS - Wine Spectator Magazine 90 Points
