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:
The 2016, also with the maturity and the experience of Luca, is beginning to fall more into a more less wood noticeable working on the wine in the cellar, and there is more clarity of fruit and wine expression coming through. The 2016 is a beautiful vintage.
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".
