Grape varitey: Nebbiolo
Is very exciting that we are able to promote, to offer you, a vertical tasting of 4 vintages, while they last and starting with the eldest:
As we so often mention, the enlightened agriculturalist “Vignaioli” are people who, in lesser vintages, create surprisingly complex and balanced wines. This is the case in 2014, which was otherwise a relatively complicated vintage, but lest we forget, the 2014 to be very precise across the river Tanaro in Roero, was a much less complicated vintage then on the south side in Langhe in Barolo and Barbaresco, where they had great difficulties and where it really exacted a lot of precision, from enlightened viticulturists, on the north side in Roero, in the 2014, really in the end where the patrians was not especially challenging, the 2014 came out as a very beautiful balanced and not overly rich wine.
The grapes come from a single vineyard (only one) based in Audinaggio, in Valmaggiore mga, in Vezza d'Alba municipality. The original core of this vineyard dates back to 1947 and the steep slope of the hill only allows manual processing. The exposure is south-east, south, south-west; the soil is sandy.
The grapes are harvested at the best state of ripeness depending on each vintage and on the plants. Wine is the result of grapes fermentation and maceration which last a couple of weeks; the period can change based on the vintage and on its climatic conditions.
After the required aging in casks, the wine is bottled in the waning moon of autumn following the harvest. Finally after a further rest in bottle for almost two year, the wine is ready to be sold. In the best vintages it may boast the mention of "reserve".
