Production

Grapes for this wine grow on higher altitude, south-west-facing vineyards in the south of the Asti region. They are hand-harvested in late September or early October and fermented in stainless-steel tanks. Once dry, the grapes are pressed and the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation. The final wine is then left to mature for 4-6 months in stainless steel to maintain the fruit flavours, before bottling.

Tasting note

Juicy aromas of blackberries, damson and black cherry carry through to the palate accompanied by soft tannins, savoury pepper spice and a refreshing finish.
