Tasting Notes:

A Barolo of high standing, both austere and complex. Deep red garnet in color. Delicately spiced bouquet (notes of eucalyptus, licorice and menthol), mature fruit (liqueur-soaked cherries, blackberries and prunes) and hints of violets and medicinal herbs. Powerful on the palate, lightly acidic and fresh. Lasting finish.


Ages slowly for about 20 months in small French oak barriques.


Maceration for 6-10 days in stainless steel with an additional 10-12 days of fermentation. The wine is then transferred to small French oak barrels to undergo malolactic fermentation.

Food Pairing:

An aristocratic wine that finds its ideal match with game, jugged hare, braised beef, chamois, roe deer, wild boar, venison, and pigeon. Superb with dishes garnished with white truffles from Alba, like cardoon flan with fondue and duck ravioli.
