Viticulture

Our hills are steep, and lie in east-west exposure. In particular, our vineyards have a southeast exposure, which allows vines to heat slowly, with the rising sun. Grapes are hand-harvested as mechanization is impossible on the vineyard slopes. The altitude of the vineyards averages 400 meters and the Tanaro river is just a few miles from us, providing a fresh influence to the region.

Soil

The soil is a white clay laying on marnal rocks of alluvial origins, with high content of silica.

Ratings & Reviews
Vinification

Selected organically grown grapes picked in owned vineyards are harvested by hand. They are gently crushed and left to begin fermentation spontaneously; the must ferments with skin contact at about 25°C. Fermentation and aging process take place in cement tanks. Bottling time is always during warmer times, allowing this wine to showcase its best character.

Tasting Note

An intense and complex nose, with fruity notes of cherry and blueberries. The wine is round, pleasant, with well-balanced acidity and a clean finish.
